Using new, improved technology to develop chemical processes to manufacture Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients for Africa

The local manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) has been a priority of the South African government since the large-scale roll-out of government sponsored anti-retroviral (ARV) treatments for HIV/AIDS infected patients. Reliance on the importation of finished drugs or the API itself not only places the country with a security of supply risk, but also results in a significant trade deficit for the pharmaceutical sector.
