(52 pages)


Like many other developing countries, Zanzibar has been receiving many donations of pharmaceutical products from various donor agencies and has been experiencing several problems associated with donations.

In order to alleviate problems associated with the donations and achieve good donation practice, the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare has decided to develop official guidelines based on the existing Zanzibar National Drug Policy, WHO’s Guidelines for Drug Donations and Zanzibar Food Drugs and Cosmetics Act (ZFDCA).

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