Senda Bahri Hicheri, director of the National Control Laboratory of Tunisia (LNCM), is looking forward to helping Tunisian pharmaceutical players thrive by allowing them to profit from both shorter market access times and an upcoming accreditation for the laboratory. In this interview, she explains the key role the LNCM is playing in the approval of drugs as well as other chemical and personal care products for the Tunisian market. In the near future, she hopes the Laboratory will have the chance to access biotechnologies and biosimilars in-house. What role does the LNCM play in the Tunisian healthcare system and what are your main responsibilities?
"Following the path carved by my predecessor, I have made it a point to increase our responsiveness."
