Online Course on Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and GMP Inspections (i+academy) (August 29th 2016)

There is currently a strong momentum for strengthening of the local pharmaceutical sector in developing and emerging markets. Local manufacturers often struggle to compete and even survive not being in line with international quality standards, thus preventing them from passing WHO prequalification, participating in international tenders, and gaining entry into international markets.Regional and national strategies have been developed which promote local pharmaceutical production in line with international standards. These include, for example, the "EAC Regional Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan of Action (RPMPOA)" and "Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan for Africa". As a result, it is essential for professionals in the manufacturing and health product regulatory circles to understand the principles of good manufacturing practices required for high quality products. The course is based on WHO GMP guidelines.
