WHO Prequalification of Diagnostics Programme

The WHO prequalification of diagnostics programme aims to increase access to affordable diagnostic technologies of assured quality that are appropriate for use in resource limited settings. The programme provides Member States, UN agencies and other partners with technical information and advice on the quality of currently available HIV/AIDS, malaria and hepatitis B and C test kits and technologies.

Prequalification of diagnostics is a prerequisite for UN procurement ensuring that public monies are spent in a cost effective manner, on quality diagnostics.

Overview of prequalification of diagnostics

If a product meets the prequalification requirements then it can become eligible for inclusion in UN procurement tenders.
