Kenya Healthcare Federation, the Health Sector Board of Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), lauds and congratulates Kenya’s Ministry of Health and the Kenya Government at large, for securing the deal for Moderna Inc (MRNA.O) to set up a $500 million manufacturing facility in Kenya, its first in Africa, to produce 500 million doses of mRNA vaccines to the continent each year.
With this development, Kenya Healthcare Federation takes the opportunity to urge the Government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Health to fast track the Ratification of the Treaty for the Establishment of African Medicines Agency, AMA, as well as secure hosting of AMA in Kenya.

Kenya is among the countries that have neither signed nor ratified the Treaty and we call upon the Kenyan Government to support this initiative.
