The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CP+ Associates GmbH and Fundisa African Academy of Medicines Development, and after consultations with other African Regulators, convened a regulators expert meeting at the upcoming World Conference on Pharmacometrics (WCOP) that was held in Cape Town, South Africa in 2022.

SAHPRA organisers hosted side meetings during the conference where two (2) sessions were convened. The first reported on progress on capacity strengthening for African regulators, and the second had a specific focus on capacity development for using model-based analyses and pharmacometrics to support regulatory decision making.
