PAHO and PANDRH called on countries of the Region to continue to work on ensuring the development of national regulatory systems to guarantee access to safe, effective and quality medicines.
The Pan American Network for Drug Regulatory Harmonization (PANDRH) is an initiative created by PAHO and national regulatory authorities in the Region of the Americas in 1999 to ensure that all national-level regulatory systems are fit for purpose and appropriate for their national context.
The main objectives of PANDRH are to strengthen regulatory functions of the countries of the Americas; develop proposals for the convergence of regulatory standards according to international guidelines; provide capacity building to support good regulatory practices among Member States; and to encourage national regional authorities to develop and maintain well-structured organizations.
In the Americas, PANDRH provides a useful environment for uniting HRAs in a PRAIS-wide cooperation and harmonization project.
