22 March 2017

This first FAP-D TWG meeting was hosted at the NEPAD Agency Head Office in Johannesburg, South Africa on 6th and 7th December 2016.

Dr Geoff Banda presented on the lessons learnt from medicines manufacture on the continent that can be applied to African vaccine manufacture, in addition to the current findings on the Regenerative Medicine project with Joyce Tait and James Mittra on how the UK is investing in innovation infrastructure for emerging technologies. The presentation was built on research done in the Innogen Institute on financing local pharmaceutical manufacture, innovation and industrial development and the book Making Medicines in Africa.
