Appointment of Expert for SAVax Vaccine Production Regulation


The project "Vaccines for Africa - Distribution and Production in South Africa (SAVax)" was developed by BMZ (German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) and will be implemented by GIZ between January 2022 and December 2024. The aim of the project is to provide improved access to high-quality vaccines for all population groups in South Africa. The project is divided in two components: distribution to the vaccine roll-out in South Africa and local manufacturing of vaccines for Africa. In a worldwide comparison, Africa is particularly disadvantaged in accessing vaccines and related products. SAVax aims at supporting South Africa’s capacity to produce vaccines and related products.


The appraisal mission for the GIZ SAVax project conducted a preliminary needs assessment of the pharmaceutical regulatory environment in mid 2021. In order to better understand and further concretize the support in these areas and elaborate a roadmap for this support, GIZ and SAHPRA agreed in engaging a consultant(s) to conduct a more detailed Needs Assessment. The Needs Assessment will generate numerous follow-up actions for SAVax.  For this reason, the SAVax Project wishes to hire a Backstopping Expert for Pharmaceutical Regulation, to join its team.
