Aspen concludes a 10yr agreement with Serum Institute of India for Aspen-branded vaccines in Africa.

On the announcement of Aspen Pharmacare’s full year results Group CEO Stephen Saad said: “The Group has achieved a robust set of results for the year ended 30 June 2022, supported by improved operating margins underpinned by a lower operating expense base and a strong balance sheet, all of which provide a solid foundation for future sustainable growth. Aspen has concluded a 10-year collaboration agreement with Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd. (“the Serum Institute”) to manufacture, market and distribute four Aspen-branded routine vaccines in Africa. In responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, investing billions to establish world class steriles manufacturing capability, Aspen has demonstrated its ability to partner successfully to deliver millions of doses of vaccine to the highest standard. Through this agreement with the Serum Institute, the partners are responding to the African Union’s call for more African vaccine manufacturing on the continent. Enhancing access to medicines is at the forefront of Aspen’s ESG strategy.”
