- Next meeting:
Since 2004 the production of Artemisia and artemisinin has gone through peaks and troughs due to variable market demand, available funds for the purchase of ACTs and climatic factors, resulting in under/over supply and high/low prices. This has resulted in an industry where investors are very wary and where decisions, by all sections of the industry, often have to be made at short notice, instead of being based on good market analysis and long term production plans.
Terms of reference:
To convene, coordinate and facilitate partners to:
- address challenges related to artemisinin supply; and
- map the production and flows of artemisinin, APIs, AMT and ACTs including substandard, counterfeit and fake products.
