WHO PQP prequalifies record number of products

Oct 10, 2013 | WHO PQ

The WHO PQP prequalified a record number of 9 products in a single day, of which 4 were generic reproductive health (RH) products. This demonstrates that the WHO PQP for reproductive health medicines is achieving results. The RHSC QuRHM programme, managed by Concept Foundation, is playing a major role in ensuring that generic products are entering the prequalification pipeline by providing technical support to manufacturers and by creating awareness of the need for prequalification of products by international donors and procurers within the manufacturing community. Together, these activities being undertaken by WHO and Concept Foundation are continuing to increase the availability of low cost, quality assured RH products for women and girls in low-income countries.
