The COMESA Secretariat has received financing from the African Development Fund toward the cost of the COMESA Support Towards Regional Pharmaceutical Sector Development (CSTRPSD or the Project) and intends to apply part of the agreed amount for this grant to payments under the contract for the services of a Project Coordinator for the CSTRPSD Project.
The pharmaceutical industry in the region is nascent and characterised by limited technical capacity to locally manufacture enough essential medicines and medical supplies to meet domestic demand. This is due to several challenges faced by the sector, including weak national regulatory institutions, poor quality control systems, lack of credible and certified laboratories, among others.The objectives of this Project , therefore, are to provide institutional support for the development of the pharmaceutical industry through strengthened capacities of the region’s pharmaceutical regulatory bodies, quality control and management systems, research, and development institutions for effective manufacturing of safe and quality pharmaceutical products in the region.
The services included under this project are planning and execution of the Project, in terms of daily practical management and coordination of the activities of the Project. The estimated period of execution is three (3) years with a possibility of extension subject to availability of funds for continued project implementation and satisfactory performance. The initial contract period shall include a six (6) months probationary period.
The COMESA Secretariat now invites eligible consultants to indicate their interest in providing these services. Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services.
