The government of Ghana in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, have commenced process to see the country become a vaccine manufacturer in a couple of years.
In a twitter feed, the Minister for information and Member of Parliament for the Ofoase-Ayirebi Constituency, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said “The Presidential Vaccine Manufacturing Committee is briefing the country and stakeholders on the work done so far and the roadmap ahead.”
In line with bridging the gap between developed and developing countries in terms of vaccine distribution, the WHO’s Representative to Ghana, Dr Francis Chisaka Kasolo, speaking at the Ninth College of Health Sciences Biennial Conference assured government of the World Health Organisation’s support to enable Ghana realise such goals.
In February this year, government commissioned a Vaccine Manufacturing Committee to facilitate the capacity of domestic pharmaceutical companies to fill, complete and package COVID-19 vaccines.
Additionally, the committee was tasked to develop a roadmap by carrying out stakeholder consultations for Cabinet and Parliamentary approvals towards the establishment of a National Vaccine Institute that will coordinate domestic vaccine development and manufacture.
Below is the tweet from the Minister for Information.
