Develops, produces, and markets drugs licensed for use as generic or brand medications.

Pharmaceutical products may be for either internal or external use. Some are developed for use in the medical diagnosis, cure, treatment or prevention of disease. Listed here are pharmaceutical companies in Zambia that supply these products. The pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets drugs or pharmaceuticals licensed for use as medications. Pharmaceutical companies deal in generic or brand medications as well as medical devices.

Pharmaceutical products – more commonly known as medicines or drugs – are a fundamental component of both modern and traditional medicine. It is essential that such products are safe, effective, and of good quality, and are prescribed and used rationally.


In Zambia, the Zambia Medicines Regulatory Authority (ZAMRA) regulates and controls the manufacture, importation, storage distribution, supply, sale and use of medicines and allied substances. It is a statutory body established under an Act of Parliament; the Medicines and Allied Substances Act No. 3 of 2013.

ZAMRA’s main objective is to ensure that all medicines and allied substances being made available to the Zambian people consistently meet the set standards of quality, safety and efficacy.

For the standardisation, standards formulation, quality control, quality assurance, import and export quality inspections, certification and removal of technical barriers to trade, it is the Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS) that carries out this function. It is the Statutory National Standards Body for Zambia established under an Act of Parliament, the Standards Act, Cap 416 of 1994 of the Laws of Zambia.

Using ineffective, poor quality, harmful medicines can lead to healing failure, the worsening of disease, resistance to medicines and sometimes death. It also weakens confidence in health systems, health professionals, pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors.
