  • ARVs made easy in Uganda? | Jina Moore
    s tempting to think that local manufacturing of drugs is also a good thing but that looks a little murkier BBC s African Dream series last year reported that Quality Chemicals was certified in good manufacturing practices by the World Health Organization in 2010 According to the BBC the designation allows the company to sell to NGOs but the company s biggest customer is the Ugandan Ministry of Health and the greatest number of drugs the MoH is buying are Indian and Chinese 90 percent of Uganda s ARVs are still manufactured abroad Uganda s Anti Corruption Coalition ACC says the arrangement amounts to corruption The ACC says Quality Chemicals and the government cut a deal in 2005 The Ugandan government would buy all of its ARVs from Quality Chemicals for seven years in exchange for the company building a manufacturing plant in Uganda To incentivize that investment the government agreed to pay a 15 percent markup on the drugs which were supposed to be cheaper regardless because they were manufactured locally But because most of Quality Chemicals stock is still imported the ACC says the effect is that the Ugandan government is simply paying a 15 percent middleman s fee to Quality Chemicals I d be curious to hear what others know about this especially those living in Uganda and or working in the health sector there Regardless the single pill ARV is still a ways off BBC s Focus on Africa which reported news of the single pill yesterday says it s not on the market Tags AIDS ARVs HIV kampala public health Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews
