Semisynthetic Artemisinin: Cross-Sector Partnership to Stabilize the Antimalarial Drug Supply

Artemisinin-based combination therapy is considered the gold standard treatment for malaria, but global demand has often outpaced production, and pricing has been volatile. With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH and our partners set out to develop a new pharmaceutical manufacturing process to produce commercial volumes of high-quality, nonseasonal, and affordable artemisinin to supplement the plant-based supply. This poster, presented at the Bay Area World Malaria Day Symposium on April 25, 2014, presents key facts on malaria, the market for artemisinin, partner roles, and commercial production.
