This analysis of collaboration between NGOs, MoHs and WHO in drug distribution and supply concentrated on:
• international vs. country-level collaboration;
• NGOs in official relations with WHO vs. NGOs in informal relations with WHO.
All relations based on a written agreement between an international NGO and WHO and adopted by the Executive Board of WHO are defined as official relations. All other forms of WHO relations with NGOs are seen as informal.
The regional level is considered only very briefly in this analysis. The focus is on WHO programmes at country level, and the interaction between these, MoHs and NGOs involved in drug distribution and supply.
