Drug regulation in South Africa.

Author information

South African Medicines Control Council.


South Africa has a population of approximately 30 million people. The country has a mixture of advanced industrial and rural economies, but the medicine control system is consistent with similar systems established in the major industrial countries of Western Europe and North America. Because most of South Africa's population lives in conditions more closely akin to the developing world than to the Western nations, it is important to examine whether the country is optimally served by this drug regulation model and to define critically the strengths and limitations of the established system. The conclusions might be relevant for other countries at a comparable stage of development.
