In the context of the African CDC Health Agenda, which focuses on disease prevention, surveillance, and response, local manufacturing of health products becomes a strategic imperative. By producing items such as vaccines, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices and medical person protective equipment locally, African countries can better respond to public health challenges
This event is designed to address a critical issue that has been at the forefront of discussions in recent times – the need to enhance Africa’s capacity for local manufacturing of health products. The African continent faces numerous challenges in achieving health resilience, particularly in times of global health crises like the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the critical issues is the reliance on imported health products, which often leads to supply chain disruptions and increased healthcare costs. To address this,Scrubs paradize Medical Apparel Limited is privileged to host a side event at the African CDC CPHIA summit dedicated to promoting local manufacturing of health products in Africa. This event aims to explore the benefits and strategies of advancing health resilience through local production and invites organizations to support this cause. The event aims to foster collaboration, knowledge sharing, and action among stakeholders from government, industry, and civil society to promote health resilience on the continent.
