Awamedica is The Pride of Iraq

This week, the first manufacturing company in the history of Kurdistan, Awamedica, will send its products to the local market.

“Up to now I have worked in eight famous manufacturing medicine companies–this is one of the best,” said Dr. Kumar Prasad, from India, manager of Awamedica Plant, as he spoke about the process of producing medicine.

“Here we have all the necessities; research and development laboratory, main laboratory production areas, and quality control; we can produce different kinds of medicine without calling for any help from the outside,” said Dr. Prasad, who has 29 years of experience in pharmacy.

Awamedica Pharmaceutical Plant, which is a private manufacturing company, proclaims to be committed to quality and to meeting regulatory GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards in manufacturing, packaging, and testing of the products.

The plant opened in October 2009; a delegation from the Iraq Health Ministry recently visited the plant and in described it as the “pride of Iraq.”

The “Globe” visited the plant to learn about this and other issues concerning medicine in Kurdistan Region and Iraq at large.

It was necessary to build an excellent pharmaceutical plant in the country in order to eliminate poor-quality medicine, said the general manager of Awamedica, Dr. Bahram Resul.

According to Dr. Resul, the majority of medicines imported into Iraq are of inferior quality since there is not a strong quality control system in the country. Moreover, he added, economically it is better to depend on ourselves rather than send all the money to other countries.

Awamedica produces tablets, capsules, liquid, creams and dry powders; the plant has a laboratory, quality control, research and development department, marketing, and storage.

“We are confident that Awamedica will be very successful and will gain a reputable name in terms of quality,” said Dr. Resul, who also mentioned that they will not let any Awamedica products be exported until they can ensure top quality.
