The supply chain for artemisinin, the key drug in artemisinin combination therapies (ACTs), is complex and challenging.
30% of needed supply of artemisinin is produced semi-synthetically by Sanofi, while the remainder must come from A. annua plant extraction.
Will the crop supply enough material for global demand?
Zagaya is working to ensure affordable access of these life-saving drugs for all in need.
