Promoting the Quality of Medicines (PQM) Program

The Promoting the Quality of Medicines (PQM) program helps low- and middle-income countries strengthen health systems that ensure the quality, and increase the supply, of priority medicines. PQM assists countries in their journey to self-reliance in many ways, including helping to improve supply of quality-assured antimicrobial medicines to mitigate the emergence of antimicrobial resistance, and supporting private-sector engagement in healthcare programs. Funded by USAID, the PQM program is implemented by USP.
