Kenya Neurology Clinical Trials Market Executive Summary

The Kenya Neurology Clinical Trials market is projected to grow from $3.66 Mn in 2022 to $6.1 Mn by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period of 2022 - 2030. According to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Sub-Saharan Africa has 11% of the world's population but bears 24% of the global illness burden in terms of human and financial expenses. Africa accounts for over half of all child fatalities under the age of five. Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) account for 37% of DALYs in Kenya, with neurological illnesses accounting for 70%. Alzheimer's and dementia fatalities in Kenya reached 1,827 in 2020, accounting for 0.69% of total deaths, according to the most recent WHO statistics. Kenya ranks 76 in the world with an age-adjusted death rate of 18.35 per 100,000 inhabitants.

Kenya's neurology clinical trial landscape is still in its early phases, with minimal clinical trial activity focusing on neurological illnesses. Historically, the bulk of clinical trials in Kenya has focused on infectious illnesses and non-communicable diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. The low frequency of neurological illnesses in Kenya is one of the reasons for the country's minimal clinical trial activity in neurology.

The rising prevalence of neurological illnesses in Kenya, such as stroke, epilepsy, and Parkinson's disease, is spurring interest in clinical studies in this sector. Kenya's government and academic institutions are starting to invest in research infrastructure and training to support neurological clinical trial activities.  Nairobi's Aga Khan University Hospital has begun a neurology research programme that includes clinical trials for neurological illnesses. Moreover, the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) has begun to investigate options for conducting neurology clinical trials and has cooperated with global counterparts to establish clinical trial protocols.

Kenya Neurology Clinical Trials Market

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

Many aspects influence neurology clinical trials in Kenya, including the country's high incidence of neurological illnesses such as epilepsy, stroke, and neuro infections. Moreover, the Kenyan government has invested in the healthcare system, including the establishment of specialist neurological care clinics, which may draw additional clinical trials to the nation. The favourable regulatory framework in Kenya, which includes the formation of regulatory agencies such as the Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB) and the National Commission for Science, Technology, and Innovation (NACOSTI), also contributes to the country's adoption of clinical trials.

Market Restraints

There are a number of obstacles to conducting clinical trials in Kenya. One of them is the country's inadequate research funding, which may impede the expansion of clinical trials. Moreover, a dearth of skilled people, such as neurologists and clinical trial coordinators, may impede the conduct of high-quality studies. Insufficient infrastructure, particularly clinical research and laboratory facilities, is another barrier. Moreover, there may be ethical considerations with clinical trial conduct in Kenya, such as informed consent and participant safety.
