Hosted within the DIA Europe 2022 meeting (29-31 March 2022) under the Regional Updates Track, IFPMA and its Africa Regulatory Network organized a virtual panel discussion on “The new African Medicines Agency (AMA):  Accelerating Regulatory System Strengthening in Africa.”  

 The session gathered global health experts across government, civil society, and industry to discuss progress made in regulatory harmonization in Africa at regional and continental levels. The event  highlighted the importance of using reliance and collaboration mechanisms, working in partnerships to address remaining regulatory barriers, and facilitate access to medicinal products to patients under the umbrella of the African Medicines Agency.
