Guidance on donations of health products

If a CO wants to donate and/or receive a donation of health products for an emergency or any other scenario, the CO needs to follow WHO’s Guidelines for medicine donations and UNDP’s QA Policy to assure the quality of medicine being donated or accepted, and adherence to good practices.

The WHO “Medical device donations: considerations for solicitation and provision” provides additional guidance on donations of medical devices.

These same guidelines apply to UNDP COs wanting to lend health products to another CO, or to borrow stock from another CO.

For Global Fund programmes, it is a pre-requisite to receive Global Fund’s approval for processing any donation of health products that were funded with grant resources. UNDP COs are advised to consult with the GFPHST Senior Health PSM Advisor for guidance.
