MEDICRIME Convention: towards the cohesion of the Lomé Initiative signatory countries

On 2 December 2020, the Minister of Health of the Republic of Togo, Professor M. Mijiyawa, and the Chief Executive of the Brazzaville Foundation, Richard Amalvy, participated in the 3rd plenary meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the MEDICRIME Convention.

Hosted by the President of the Council of Europe, Mr Sergei Glagolev, and the Secretary, Mr Oscar-Alarcón Jiménez, the participants exchanged views on the systemic and inter-ministerial approach to falsified and substandard medicines and the follow-up of the Lomé Initiative.

Driven by the Brazzaville Foundation, the Initiative aims for the signing and ratifying of international agreements that provide a legislative framework favourable to African countries in accessing quality medicines.

The Foundation is working towards this goal, in order to allow the six signatory countries of the Initiative (Congo, Gambia, Ghana, Niger, Senegal, Togo and Uganda) to sign the MEDICRIME Convention, led by the Republic of Togo.
