Regulatory capacity building in the Republic of Congo

To foster scientific excellence in the evaluation and supervision of medicines, for the benefit of public health, the Ministry in charge of health of the Republic of Congo has initiated a plan to strengthen the regulatory capacity of its Department of Pharmacy and Medicines implemented by its director, Dr Boniface OKOUYA.
This process is based on a strong commitment to pharmaceutical reform for which the law will be promulgated shortly. It is in this momentum that the Directorate of Pharmacy and Medicines in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Africlinique project, a regulatory capacity building project in Central Africa (funded by the European Union through EDCTP), will carry out a self-assessment of its pharmaceutical regulatory system using the Global Benchmarking Tool (GBT) developed by the WHO.

This self-assessment will allow the assessment of the level of maturity of pharmaceutical regulation in the country as well as the identification of gaps and the establishment of an institutional development plan.

All parties are committed to an effective implementation of the improvement measures that will result from this assessment
