Pharmaceutical Manufacturing – The Challenges

The Challenges

The manufacturing industry does not get enough respect. The big companies are easily targeted by the media. Something should be done to fix it. These are some of the things pharmaceutical manufacturers complain about every day. Most believe that the industry receives a bad rap. They might be right.

As just as these complaints may be, the industry has been creating some of these problems it’s facing today over a long time. And the fix to this comes from within with activities such as:

  • Ensuring quality of the products.
  • Ensure the safety of the supply chain.
  • Improve the efficiency of pharmaceutical manufacturing.
  • Make the patient the priority. All the time.

Failure to this, the image of the industry will continue to be tainted and the public will sure despise it more than it already does.

But if you come to think of it, all this criticism’s because the work they do is very important. The products they make save and change lives. The impact they have is felt worldwide. An increase in cost of the drugs will be felt by the public. When they get criticism from this they understand that this is a reaction that’s naturally a need for someone to blame. And most of the time they can’t prevent this-no matter how little at fault they may be.

The challenges facing the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry have increased significantly. They range from within (financial, labour, coordination, etc.) and outside (the government, media, public, etc.).

How Big/Small is Their Responsibility?

Each working day in their industry comes with its share of risks. They can’t avoid most of these risks. This means that change in the industry doesn’t come as quickly as we and/or everybody else anticipates. But it doesn’t mean that it will never happen. It sure does (will) come in the end.

The public, the media and other “outsiders” might never understand this. All they realise is when we “blunder” and most importantly when a new drug lessens pain, prolongs life or saves it. Our great power has come with great responsibility. We must stand up and meet this responsibility while handling the challenges in the most effective way possible.
