2 OVERVEIW OF THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY The estimated consumption of drugs in Uganda is approximately US $ 80 to 100 million p.a. Imports of pharmaceutical and health products account for over 6% of total imports. National Medical Stores (NMS) imports most of the pharmaceutical and health products. NMS is an autonomous government corporation, established by the National Medical Stores Statute no. 12 of 1993 to be responsible for ensuring continuous distribution of pharmaceutical products in a financially viable and sustainable manner. Pharmaceutical companies in Uganda are categorized into 2 groups the manufacturers and distributors. Some of the firms produce a range of pharmaceutical products including; injectables, liquid mixtures, Aspirin, assembling capsules, disposable syringes, paracetamol, surgical gauze etc. A list of small scale and large-scale manufacturers is annexed under Annex 2:Contacts of Manufacturers in Uganda There are about 217 pharmacies which are mainly concentrated in Kampala, 1917 registered drug shops throughout the country, 1500 clinics which also act as drug outlets and 98 hospitals distributed in the 56 districts. Government Policy The National Drug Policy relates to the regulation of the importation, production, distribution, marketing, exportation, and use of pharmaceuticals in the public as well as the private sector and to any matter related to the above. The National Drug Authority (NDA) is charged with the implementation of the National Drug Policy. All Statutory requirements are contained in: - The National Drug Policy and Authority Statute, 1993; The National Drug Policy and Authority (issue of licenses) Regulations, 1993; The National Drug Policy and Authority (Certificate of Suitability of Premises) Regulations, 1995; A number of guidelines and sops, which are obtainable from the National Drug Authority, Head Office. National Drug Authority (NDA) The National Drug Authority (NDA) is an autonomous body set up by the government by statute No. 13 of 1993, to implement the National Drug Policy based on the concept of Essential Drugs. NDA is the guardian of public interest concerning drugs. Any drug promotion information reaching the public in Uganda must first be vetted by and obtain approval from NDA. 2

3 Control of Medicines According to the National Drug policy Statute 1993, Part 1 Sector 2, Drug means any substance or preparation used or intended to be used for internal or external application in the treatment or prevention of disease or improving physiological reactions. Please note that drug includes herbal medicines. In Uganda, drugs are classified into three categories:- - Class A Narcotics; - Class B Restricted drugs prescription only drugs/medicines + pharmacy only medicines; and - Class C Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs/medicines. Class A and B are drugs which must be dispensed only on prescription by a registered medical Practitioner, Dental Surgeon and Veterinary Surgeon. Drug Registration Drugs are registered by NDA to ensure that before any human or veterinary drug is made available on the Ugandan market, it is thoroughly scrutinized for it s quality, effectiveness and safety and then, if found to be suitable, registered for use in Uganda. The products that require registration are: 1) Pharmaceutical preparations, eg tablets, capsules, syrups, injections, creams, ointments eye/ear drops etc 2) Biological preparations eg vaccines and antisera 3) Traditional / Herbal medicines Guidelines for submission of applications and for evaluation of the applications are published and updated annually. Separate guidelines have been produced for the following: 1) Human pharmaceutical products 2) Veterinary pharmaceutical products 3) Human vaccines and immunological products 4) Human traditional medicines 5) Veterinary traditional medicines Registration of Herbal Medicines All imported herbal medicines should be registered. To date 66 applications have been approved. Locally manufactured herbal medicines that meet the required standards will be registered as soon as the guidelines and sale of herbal medicines are approved. Summary of Drug Registration Process Prospective applicants Applications for registration submitted Evaluation of applications Recommendation to Committee on National Formulary Recommendation to NDA Board ADDITION TO NATIONAL DRUG REGISTER Annual retention process/continuous review of register Drug Register The number of medicinal products on the drug register as at 2002 is as follows: Human medicines 2,621 Veterinary medicines (including acaricides) 371 Herbal preparations 66 3

5 A complete list of products to be manufactured and their registration status NB: More detailed information on the licensing procedures and the fees applicable can be obtained from NDA (address under Appendix 1: Useful Contacts in Uganda) Regular Export of Drugs The requirements are as follows: 1) Order from importer 2) Copy of the authority given to importer by competent authority in the country of import 3) 3 copies of invoices prepared by exporter showing batch numbers and quantities to be exported 4) Application for a provisional export permit and verification certificate 5) The consignment shall be inspected for compliance with approved specifications 6) Payment of appropriate fee Sectoral Performance The pharmaceutical and health products sector in general shows an increasing trend. The domestic industrial production has been growing steadily since 1995 (see Figure 1), but local production cannot meet the country s needs. Figure 1: Trends in the Index of Drug Production in Uganda Index Years Domestic demand versus domestic production leaves a substantial gap, which calls for imports. The imports of pharmaceutical and health products account for over 6 per cent of the total imports. Table 3 and Table 4 in Appendices 8 and 9 respectively, show the trends of imports over the period

6 UGANDA S COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE IN THE SECTOR Investment Friendly Environment A stable and predictable economic environment; A fully liberalized economy; Access to regional and international markets; An abundant natural resource base; Existence of a well trained, English speaking labor force; Continued government investment in infrastructure development; and Government commitment/support to the private sector. Strategic location at the heart of Africa Investment Protection Uganda s constitution guarantees the right to property; MIGA coverage: Uganda became a member of the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) in Under this agency, foreign investors can insure their investments in Uganda against a wide range of non-commercial risks including expropriation, currency transfers, and breach of contract and civil strife. Foreign investors can apply for MIGA through UIA; Overseas Investment Insurance Scheme The scheme provides insurance cover for UK companies against the perceived political risks of investing in foreign markets; Overseas private Investment Corporation (OPIC) An agreement signed in 1998 with the above US agency seeks to guarantee American Investment in Uganda; and Uganda has also signed bilateral investment protection agreements with a number of other countries. MARKETS Uganda s population is estimated at 21.6 million as of 2002 and is growing at a rate of about 3 per cent per annum. This trend is likely to continue and Uganda is projected to have a population of 36.8 million by This is a sizeable market to depend on. Besides, there is the common market for Eastern and Southern Africa States (COMESA) which is Africa s single regional economic grouping with an estimated population of 367 million in 20 countries. The Ugandan economy has been one of the fastest growing economies in the whole world, with an average of 6.4% for the last 8 years. This reflects an increase in the potential market for pharmaceutical and health products DEMAND FOR PHARMACEUTICALS 95% of current domestic demand is being met through imports. Uganda s imports of drugs in 1999 amounted to US $ 73,776,000 against domestic production of US$7,440,632. This shows a supply gap to be filled through increased local production. The local market situation is further supported by the high growth of income owing to the improved performance of the national economy. 6

7 Imports By Value ( 000$) SITC Grouping, SITC Description Medical & Pharmaceutical products 53,462 36,113 34,183 49,394 Source: Uganda Bureau of Statistics Statistical Abstract 2002 The Delivery of Improved Services for Health (DISH) project, which was funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), in 2002, carried out Drug Needs Quantification Exercise and District-level Drug Logistics projects in 12 of Uganda s 56 districts. Some of the results, which are annexed under (Appendix 2: Annual drug requirements for the 20 most commonly prescribed drugs, Appendix 3: Cost of one year supply of essential drugs for average health center, Cost of one year supply of essential drugs for average health center and Hospital). The results indicate a high demand for the drugs in question The AIDS epidemic, which has struck the country since the 1980 s, is an indicator of potential market for pharmaceutical and health products. There is high domestic demand for AIDS related drugs and condoms. Uganda is an associate member of the EU under the Lome Convention. Goods that qualify under the Rules of Origin enter member countries both duty free and quota free. Double Taxation Agreements with different countries including; Tanzania, Kenya, S. Africa, United Kingdom and Italy. Similarly various trade agreements have also been signed with a number of countries in Africa, Europe and America. 7

8 INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES Based on the comparative advantage and supply situation highlighted above, the pharmaceutical and health products sector offers a number of investment opportunities that include: Drugs The essential drug list prepared by the National Drug Authority consists of about 300 items of drugs for treatment of various diseases in Uganda. At the current consumption level of drugs worth US$80 to US$100 million, and 10 locally based pharmaceutical industries with a minimum annual turnover of $ 3 million, both the domestic and regional markets cannot be adequately supplied. The importation of drugs to make up the deficit implies an import substitution opportunity for manufacturers. Family Planning and Contraceptives According to the Uganda demographic and health survey of 1995, knowledge of family planning methods is nearly universal with 94% Ugandans (age years) knowing at least one contraceptive method. There are over 8 million people in Uganda above 15 years of age, forms a huge market potential of contraceptives and condoms. HIV/AIDS The prevalence of AIDS and the intensity of anti-aids campaigns have made condoms increasingly popular in Uganda with various brands being imported today. Up to 60 million condoms were distributed by the Ministry of Health, social marketing groups, and the private sector. Table 2 shows the cumulative reported AIDS cases over the period However the data in the table does not represent the actual situation since not all AIDS cases are reported. Table 2 Uganda; Cumulative Reported AIDS Cases: Year Reported Cases Source: STD/AIDS Control Program Medical Equipment Selected medical equipment and goods can be produced domestically and thereby replace imports. These products include simple surgical instruments, disposable syringes, injectable water and hospital furniture. There is only one factory producing disposable syringes but in any case supplying less than 20% of the market requirements. Two companies namely; Tumpeco and Clinical Equipment presently produce hospital furniture but also short of national requirements by over 80%. The rest of the other products are not locally made. Herbal Medicine Uganda is well known for its bio-diversity in flora and fauna. Scientists believe that Uganda s forests could generate a variety of sources of drugs and herbal medicine. This is still a virgin area that calls for different researchers and pharmacists to exploit. The National Drug Authority is in the process of outlining guidelines for the registration of herbal medicines. 8

9 The Neem Tree There is a global trend now towards the use of alternative, ecologically beneficial agricultural and health agents. The Neem tree s potential in solving public health problems is quite known today. The seeds, bark and leaves contain compounds with proven antiseptic, antiviral, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer and anti-fungal uses. The tree can be used as birth control for women and men. Neem oil is an effective insect repellent and insecticide, and can be used in the production of medicated soap with neem odour, which is proved to have very effective anti germ properties. A neem tree normally starts fruiting after 3-5 years. In about 10 years it becomes fully productive. In favorable conditions, fresh fruit yield per grown tree is about 50 kgs per year. Raw material based products Uganda is well endowed with water, sugar, cotton, and starch necessary to produce various medical products. Resource based industries tapping these raw materials as their primary inputs could seize an opportunity in Uganda to produce items like; surgical cotton/gauze, sanitary pads, bandages, glucose, water for injections, infusions, syrups, oxygen etc. 9

10 Facilitation Services and the Incentive Regime The Uganda Investment Authority (UIA) is a Government body to promote and facilitate investment in Uganda. The UIA can help investors: Obtain necessary information on investment in Uganda. Implement their project ideas through professional advice and assistance in locating relevant project support services. Issue the necessary investment licence and helping investors to secure secondary licenses and approvals e.g. work permits, trading licences etc. Arranging contacts for an investor and organizing itineraries for visiting foreign missions within the country. Assisting investors in seeking joint venture partners and linking with possible funding agencies. THE INCENTIVE REGIME Uganda s fiscal incentive package provides for generous capital recovery terms, particularly for investors whose projects entail significant investment in plant and machinery and whose investments are medium or long term. The incentive package includes:- Category 1 Initial Investment Allowances which are deductible once from the company s income. Initial allowances are based on the value of plant and machinery: - Kampala, Entebbe, Namanve, Jinja & Njeru areas 50% Outside Kampala, Entebbe, Namanve & Jinja area 75% Start-up costs 25% Scientific Research expenditure 100% Training expenditure 100% Industrial buildings 20% Category 2 Deductible Annual Allowances Depreciable assets specified in 4 classes under declining balance method:- Class 1 Computers & Data handling equipment 45% 10

11 Class 2 Automobiles, Construction and Earth moving equipment 35% Class 3 Buses, Goods Vehicles, Tractors, Trailers, Plant & Machinery for farming, manufacturing and mining 30% Class 4 Cars, Locomotives, Vessels, Office furniture, fixtures etc. 20% Category 3 Other Annual Depreciation Allowances Industrial Buildings, Hotels & Hospitals 5% Assessed losses arising out of company operations including the loss from the investment allowances can be carried forward indefinitely. In addition, Uganda s corporation tax rate of 30% is one of the lowest in Africa. All plant and machinery is imported duty and tax-free. Investors who register as VAT Traders are allowed VAT refunds on all construction materials used on their projects within a period not exceeding 4 years of project implementation. Further more, there are no taxes on all exports from Uganda. Exporters are also allowed duty draw back facilities on all taxes paid on raw materials used for the manufacture of exports. Uganda also has a fully liberalized foreign exchange regime with no restrictions on the movement of capital. 100% ownership of projects by foreign investors is allowed. 11
