Zanzibar, Guidelines for Pharmaceutical Inspection, January 2008
(2008; 136 pages)


One objective of the Zanzibar drug policy is the assurance of the quality, safety, and efficacy of the drugs circulating on the Zanzibar market. Zanzibar receives pharmaceutical products from different channels of supply. These Pharmaceutical products are further distributed to health facilities, private pharmacies, shops (for OTCs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to reach the patients. A quality assurance programme is therefore necessary to ensure that all drugs are rigorously inspected so that only drugs of good quality reach the patients.

The WHO Essential Medicines and Health Products Information Portal was designed and is maintained by Human Info NGO. Last updated: December 6, 2017
