Background: The African Medicines Agency (AMA) was established in 2011 under the jurisdiction of the Africa Medicines Regulatory Harmonisation Multi-Donor Trust Fund (AMRH) and the African Union (AU), with financial support from the World Bank, to establish a continental management information system to aid in the sharing of regulatory data and information on medicines among African countries. This was a drive to enhance access to high-quality medications and provide medical product regulation to ensure quality, safety, and to contribute to the promotion and protection of public health and better health outcomes, particularly in developing nations. 

Solution: The World Bank Group contracted Bewsys to scope the existing information management systems of all member states through stakeholder engagement with their respective National Medicine Regulatory organisations. 

Impact: Bewsys developed a digitalisation strategy and roadmap which outlined policy and system requirements and investment required for the harmonisation of regulatory management and information among African countries. The digitalisation strategy is aimed at improving  access to high-quality medications and strengthening product regulation to ensure public health safety for all.
