The main aim of the Artepal project is to help increase production of Artemisia, to give advice on extraction of artemisinin and its derivatives, and to inform all stakeholders about artemisinin supply and demand. In addition it helps API/ACT manufacturers reach Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) levels in order to meet WHO prequalification.  Artepal's major component is the transfer of technology in order to reinforce local production capacity mostly in Africa and Asia.
