Strengthening medicines regulatory systems
Bolstering national and regional authorities to improve access to medicines
Strong regulatory systems are fundamental to resilient health systems. Medicines regulatory authorities (MRAs) help people access safe, effective, and quality-assured medical products and guard against harmful substandard and falsified ones. With effective oversight and greater efficiency, MRAs can help ensure quality medicines reach patients faster and foster an enabling environment for expanded regional and local manufacturing.
We work to support national MRAs to strengthen regulatory functions and achieve advanced regulatory maturity so that they may serve as a key link in the medicine supply chain, protecting consumers from poor-quality medicines, promoting global health security, and improving health equity.
