CONSULTANCY ADVERT FOR DEVELOPMNET OF A JOINT PROPOSAL FOR THE SADC REGIONAL INDUSTRIAL PHARMACY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Secretariat, the European Union (EU) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) are jointly supporting the “COVID-19-relevant Medical and Pharmaceutical Products” (CMPP), the Antiretroviral (ARV) and Leather regional value-chain (RVC) projects. These RVCs are part of the Joint Action “Support towards Industrialization and the Productive Sectors in the SADC region (SIPS) project. The overall objective of this regional assignment is to support the development of a SADC Regional Industrial Pharmacy Fellowship to increase the availability of skilled industrial pharmaceutical personnel in the SADC region.
Findings from the inception phase of the Joint Action SIPS revealed that the SADC region lacks skilled personnel for pharmaceutical production and there is need to build capacity in that aspect. To address this, the Joint Action aims to enhance subject matter knowledge skills by facilitating the development of industry knowledge clusters between the private sector and academic / training institutions within the antiretroviral (ARV) value chain through academic initiatives such as the development of a fellowship program. For this assignment the consultant will develop a project proposal for the implementation of a regional SADC Industrial Pharmacy Fellowship Program (IPFP) in coordination with the Joint Action SIPS, universities and training institutions in South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania as well as regional pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, regional associations and the SADC Secretariat.
The Joint Action SIPS is therefore inviting interested individual consultants to apply for this regional assignment.
