The World Health Organization Prequalification of Medicines Programme and the Patent Pool

The World Health Organization Prequalification of Medicines Programme (PQP) ensures the safety and efficacy of medicines. The Pool collaborates with the WHO on several levels, and will be cooperating with the WHO/UN Prequalification of Medicines Programme to ensure that medicines made with Pool licences meet international quality and safety standards and are acceptable for UN procurement. A new joint document from the Pool and PQP explaining this cooperation is now available.
