[e-drug] Recommendations for scaling-up production of COVID-19 vaccines in Africa

E-DRUG: Recommendations for scaling-up production of COVID-19 vaccines in Africa
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Increasing local production of vaccines in Africa, including COVID-19 vaccines, 
could help expand access to these life-saving products and promote health 
security and supply chain resiliency on the continent. In particular, 
opportunities to expand capacity for the final few steps in the manufacturing 
process, known as last-mile manufacturing, may lower costs, speed up delivery 
and distribution, and increase preparedness for the next health emergency.

This white paper outlines the vaccine manufacturing process and challenges in 
Africa, and identifies opportunities and recommendations to scale-up last-mile 
manufacturing of vaccines across Africa, including increasing technical 
readiness, strengthening regulatory systems, and supporting policies and market 
access.
