(2015; 9 pages)


The 2014-15 Ebola outbreak is the largest Ebola epidemic in history, which affected multiple countries in West Africa. This epidemic has demonstrated the need for a WHO emergency use assessment and listing procedure (EUAL) for candidate medicines for use in the context of a public health emergency. The purpose of this extraordinary procedure is to provide guidance to interested UN procurement agencies and national regulatory authorities (NRAs) of relevant member states. The present document describes the EUAL for candidate medicines and is primarily aimed at manufacturers of these medicines in the context of use during a public health emergency. Participation in the procedure is voluntary.
