29 sept 2015 | Under News | Posted by

TESS Development Advisors joined with partner Medicines for Malaria Venture at the Pharma Africa Conference in London on 24-25th September to provide an update on the unique work being carried out to track national pharmaceutical markets in Africa.

Speaking to delegates from both industry and public health backgrounds, Renia Coghlan highlighted the many different benefits of improving data to measure national pharmaceutical market. From a policy perspective, such data can contribute to analysing medicines access gaps, support policy change decisions towards new first line treatments and assist in financial planning processes.

For national and international industry and investors, improvements in national data can support financial planning, highlight opportunities for local manufacturing and decrease the risk for both local and foreign investors.
