dc.description.abstract The policy brief discusses some strategies for developing the pharmaceutical sector in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in terms of affordability, human resources, research and development, intellectual property and technology transfer. Collaboration and partnerships with Asian countries: India, China and Indonesia are key players in the pharmaceutical industries. African countries have started initiatives to promote local pharmaceutical manufacturing to address the issue of high costs of imported medicines and to tap into additional benefits, such as creation of employment opportunities, technology and skills transfer and enhancing intra-Africa trade. en
