Alternative/Expedited process to register medicines
via the ZAZIBONA collaborative process
9 June 2015
The ZAZIBONA process is a collaboration between national medicines regulatory authorities (NMRAs) in Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. These are four neighbouring countries in Southern Africa which have a combined population of around 34 million. This process may be extended to include participation by other interested SADC Member States.
The vision of the ZAZIBONA process is :
• a region in which good-quality medicines are available to all those who need them;
• significantly reduce time taken to grant marketing authorisation in the individual countries; and
• efficient utilisation of resources within regional national regulatory through work sharing.
The Regulatory Resources for Africa website has been made possible by a non-prescriptive grant by Innovative Medicines South Africa (IMSA). The intention of the sponsors is to create a platform where up to date and useful information concerning the medicines regulatory environment in Africa, can be shared by all
