The CSIR puts its multidisciplinary expertise to work to help improve the health of all South Africans. To combat the high burden of disease, researchers develop cost-effective bio-therapeutic technologies, biomedical technologies and health infrastructure. They design and adapt technologies to improve diagnosis and treatment in under-resourced areas.
The organisation is contributing to improved health service delivery at national departmental level, but also at clinic level.
In line with the organisation’s commitment to amplify its support to South African industry, initiatives are underway to establish new pharmaceutical manufacturing industries.
