    GIZ project for assessment of quality of drugs in Nepal

    Project ID: PH-001 Status: Active

    "Almost all drugs produced in Nepal are being manufactured by private pharmaceutical companies, but only 16 out of 39 Nepali origin companies are WHO GMP certified." The Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) is in charge of quality assurance for drugs and with that the effectiveness of medicines directly affecting health outcomes as well as the safety of patients.

    Based on bi-lateral agreements between the Nepali and German Government, GIZ is supporting the joint MoHP-GIZ Health Sector Support Programme (HSSP), which among others is focusing on the area of quality improvement. As part of the HSSP GIZ has contracted IHP to conduct a capacity development needs assessment in the area of quality assurance for drugs. IHP with the assistance of Dr. Susan Walters will be carrying out the assessment with a special focus on assessing the effective regulatory authorities who regulate the manufacturing, import and quality control of drugs in line with international, especially WHO-related standards and guidelines.
