Challenge:

Quality regulation for generic products is limited.

Response:

UNITAID is the principal funder of the World Health Organization Prequalification programme for HIV, TB and malaria medicines and diagnostics.

Results:

  • 140 UNITAID priority medicines have been prequalified and have entered the market.
  • 26 diagnostic tests prequalified.

 

prequal

UNITAID only funds products that have been prequalified by this programme or by a national stringent regulatory authority. Increasing the number of quality-assured manufacturers also helps to achieve price reductions for medicines.
