Excellence is our creed

At Pharmalys, we foster a culture of excellence. Excellence defines our mission to help advance health through data excellence; it drives our daily work, it characterises our relationships with customers Accueil | Pharmalys. In alignment with our culture and values Our Values | Pharmalys, we created Continuous Excellence, a soft skills training programme for everyone at Pharmalys, because excellence in the workplace cannot be achieved without developing our soft skills.

Harnessing soft skills is almost as important as hard skills

We live in a world where job roles are rapidly everchanging. To meet the demands of our positions, we require not only role-specific knowledge and skills, but the capacity to leverage hard skills in alignment with our organisational roles.

Supporting and expanding the Clinical Research ecosystem in Africa is part of Pharmalys’ mission

With continued interest in advancing clinical trial conduct in sub-Saharan Africa, there is a growing imperative to strengthen pharmacovigilance systems, develop and reinforce the capacity of Ethics Committees, Regulatory bodies, and clinical research personnel in the region. With the increasing complexity of research designs, the demand for deeper technical expertise of REC members to review complex and emerging study designs rises, the review schedules must be achieved despite unusual study designs, and effective pharmacovigilance systems are requested to protect populations, and highlight possible safety issues with new interventions.

Lack of expertise has been cited as one of the barriers hindering conduct of clinical trials in developing countries. It has proven difficult to develop a strong track clinical research record to compete successfully for international funding, due to a lack of physical infrastructure, inadequately trained personnel, and weak institutions in countries with high disease burdens.

It has become clear that strengthening research capacity in Africa is critical to enhancing Africa’s self-sufficiency and preparedness for the next public health emergency, as well as the ability to fight against the endemic infectious diseases.

Capacity building programme AMELIORER, in Benin

The Pharmalys team has conceived and delivered seven capacity building programmes to Ethics Committees and Regulatory Authorities throughout Africa so far. These include ERUDIT in Togo, ERECIS in eSwatini, BRECOR in Rwanda, STREC in Ghana, AMELIORER in Benin, CECaBI in Côte d’Ivoire, and ERC in The Gambia.

One of Pharmalys’ most recent programmes was Ethics and Regulatory Capacity (ERC) in The Gambia. Health research is a crucial pillar in the development of the health sector in this country. Aligned with the Commission on Health Research for Development (COHRED), which states that ‘building research capacity in developing countries is one of the most powerful, cost-effective and sustainable ways of advancing health and development’, a consortium of different partners, named Ethics and Regulatory Capacity in The Gambia (ERC The Gambia), collaborates to transform the ethical and regulatory practices in the country.
