The WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health have made every effort to ensure the accuracy of price, supplier, and other information presented in this report. However, the reader’s attention is drawn to the introduction, which describes the specific sources and limitations of information provided in this report.

The reader’s attention is also drawn to the importance of quality assurance for pharmaceutical products. Licensing authorities in the respective countries of manufacture are responsible for the review and approval of the detailed composition and formulation when authorizing a pharmaceutical product to be marketed, including the specifications of its ingredients, as submitted by the manufacturer of the dosage form, and to oversee compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice requirements as recommended by WHO. Application of the same rules must be made to ensure the quality of the other products listed in this publication.

This list is not an exhaustive list of all available products for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of malaria. It includes only those products which were known to WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health as being commercially available at the time of publication and for which the manufacturer has (on a voluntary basis) agreed to complete a questionnaire and provide related information and documentation. The manufacturers listed will be regularly requested to provide WHO with updated information and it is hoped that the number of manufacturers reached and participating will increase over time.

This publication does not constitute an endorsement or warranty of the fitness of any product for a particular purpose. This publication is not based on an active assessment of, and does not therefore constitute an acceptance or recommendation in regard to, any product’s quality, safety or efficacy for the treatment of malaria. WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health do not furthermore warrant that the use of the products mentioned is in accordance with the national laws and regulations of any country, including but not limited to patent laws. It is recommended that Governments and UN Agencies intending to use this publication familiarize themselves with all pertinent aspects, such as quality, safety and efficacy as well as quantification, patents, financial stability and standing of the supplier, ability to supply the required quantities, delivery time and other related aspects.

Bearing in mind that the data and information provided for a product depends largely on the manufacturer, these data and information are being provided as is, and WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health make no representations or warranties, either express or implied, as to their accuracy, completeness or fitness for a particular purpose. WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health accept no responsibility or liability for the reliance on, or use of, such data and information.

This list may not be used by manufacturers and suppliers for commercial or promotional purposes. The mention of specific companies and certain of their products does not imply that they are recommended by the WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health in preference to others of a similar nature that are not mentioned.

The designations employed and the presentation of the material in this report, including tables and maps, do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the WHO, Roll Back Malaria Partnership Secretariat, UNICEF, Population Services International and Management Sciences for Health concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries.
