Pharmacity the first Indigenous Pharmaceutical Park, an intervention that strives to tackle the unmet needs for both demand and supply of medicines.
An intervention that brings in all key stakeholders including the government, academia, professionals and private sector to revolutionize indigenous drug manufacturing and reposition Nigeria to benefit from freer trade on the continent while increasing exports. This intervention tackles the existing challenges within the industry including infrastructure, regulatory policy and access to affordable and reasonable funding. Pharmacity is a compact modern-day pharmaceutical industrial estate bringing together pharmaceutical companies of various sizes, service providers and companies providing support services to co-locate and share infrastructure. It will serve as a means to increase Nigeria’s medicine and health product manufacturing capacity and enable her to reach her full potential while ensuring strict adherence to international standards.
“This Pharmaceutical Park is not only going to provide jobs for pharmacists, there will be a whole lot of Nigerians that will be employed because of this park” – Pharm. Ignatius Anukwu (National Chairman, NAIP; Interviewed 2020)
