dc.description.abstract The need to promote local pharmaceutical industries in the region is motivated by factors such as a high disease burden, the high cost of imported medicines, growing regional markets, and expected increase in access to anti-retroviral drugs and pressure from non-governmental agencies. The brief outlines conditions in the pharmaceutical industry in Nigeria, Mali, Senegal, Ghana, and Cote d’Ivoire in terms of the above factors. Funding for local research and development needs to increase along with upgrades to science and technology policy. The brief explains what can be done in terms of training and partnerships with industry as well as intra-regional cooperation. en
