About PharmaConnect Africa

The inaugural PharmaConnect Africa Conference and Expo were held on the 29th and 30th of March 2017.

Our conferences have included official representation from regulators (e.g. Ghana FDA, East Africa Community (EAC) and the home authority (South African Health Products – 

Regulatory Authority),  Department of Health (South Africa), local manufacturers (GBMSA and SAGMA), innovator companies and associations under the auspices of International Pharmaceutical Manufacturers’ Association (IFPMA), various South African universities, strategic partners such as  USP Convention, UN agencies (UNIDO and WHO), and SADC-aligned business forum (SABF).
