SAHPRA Stakeholder Engagement Framework

In order to execute its mandate as a health products regulator, the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) will engage with stakeholders on an ongoing basis. The stakeholders are individuals and organisations who have an interest in or are influenced by its work and the work of its partners who are in some way or other connected to SAHPRA’s purpose.


Since its inception, SAHPRA has prioritised the active engagement of its stakeholders, recognising it as a critical activity in achieving its core function of regulating health products in South Africa. As SAHPRA evolves, it will develop and grow its scope of communication and stakeholder engagement.
