Introduction

Regional pharmaceutical production in the IGAD region has received minimal support from the international community because most procurement systems encourage purchase of cheap imported medicines rather than investing in local production. Promotion of regional manufacture of essential medicines complements the continental agenda of the African Union, the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan for Africa (PMPA) endorsed in 2007 by member states.

Introduction

Cross-border population movement is a major social determinant of health and disease, including TB, multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) in the IGAD region. TB and TB/HIV co-infection are major public health problems in this region. Most of the TB/HIV infected are in sub-Saharan Africa with a coinfection rate of about 30% in 2016 .
