Rephaiah is not-for-profit pharmaceutical company, to be located in Lilongwe, Malawi.
We aim to empower Malawians to produce life saving and life enhancing medicine for infants and young children by establishing a manufacturing entity in Malawi.
Founded in 2001, Hananja plc. is a small family run R&D biotechnology company, located in Iceland. It is involved in the development of new drugs and vaccines with its core focus on rescue, life-saving, and life
enhancing drugs, as well as drugs to treat maternal and fetal health.
Hananja began working on the Rephaiah project in August 2016, following a vision. Since then, the focus has been on planning, preparation and raising necessary funding and means.
Hananja has sponsored the cost involved in this preparation phase until 2021.
The plan is to start building the construction late 2021. The conceptual design has been completed to be followed by a preliminary estimate. Full engineering effort is to start after funding is secured and proposed plans have been reviewed and approved by regulatory agencies.
The first Malawian employees have started working.
We are working looking for support to secure the finances and regulatory approval. We are searching for qualified talent(s) to review the project and start production training.
Donated equipment need to be identified before finalizing engineering documents.
