CPHI Podcast Series: How manufacturing in Africa can improve patient access to medicine

The latest episode of the CPHI Podcast Series features Daniel Mora-Brito, a thought leader in pharmaceutical emerging markets, talking to Digital Editor Lucy Chard about the importance of the development of manufacturing in Africa. 

Looking into emerging markets in pharmaceutical manufacturing is a really interesting topic, providing lots of food for thought.

In this episode Digital Editor Lucy Chard is joined by Daniel Mora-Brito, Engagement Manager and Thought Leader for Global Public Health at IQVIA, where they discuss the future of pharmaceutical manufacturing in Africa. 

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, Daniel is an Engagement Manager in IQVIA’s EMEA Thought Leadership team.

Daniel’s work focuses on exploring current and emerging trends within the realms of global health security, health system strengthening, and equity in access to life-saving commodities and services. Daniel has close to 20 years of experience in the multilateral sector, having occupied advisory positions in the United Nations system, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and a host of civil society organisations.

His expertise covers areas such as health policy, development operations, public-private partnerships, and multi-stakeholder coordination. Daniel holds graduate degrees in public management and social policy and development from the Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, Venezuela, and the University of Texas at Austin, respectively, with training in health policy and economics at the London School of Economics.

Daniel initially gives some background to the health landscape in the continent, covering some of the  greatest threats seen there over the years and that are still impacting people’s lives on a daily basis, helping to drive home the importance of improved, localised healthcare in the continent.

Lucy and Daniel discuss the economic factors that underpin a lot of the transformations across the region, from the perspective of those on home turf and the companies from different regions looking to invest and expand into this space. Daniel mentions the different actors in the region and what expanding capacities in Africa will mean for patient access in a rapidly expanding population.
