The need to optimise pharmaceutical education and training for a changing Pharma World

  • Editorial Office PSSA

Abstract

Our local pharmaceutical industry has been gradually moving towards a world-class system. Many forward thinking South African companies have made great strides in introducing newer production technologies, added manufacturing capability, smart procurement initiatives and advancements in other critical aspects of drug product development, registration and regulation. Despite these advancements, there is still a dire need to close the knowledge and skills gap so that as a country we can become more competitive with our international counterparts to industrialise our pharmaceutical sector and locally produce the majority of our medicines and reduce our dependence on medicine imports.
