Medicines Quality Database | USP
Poor-quality medicines pose major global public health risks. To reduce their availability in the marketplace, USP–through the Promoting the Quality of Medicines (PQM) Program–helps to develop sustainable Medicines Quality Monitoring (MQM) programs in collaboration with countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean. USP’s Medicines Quality Database currently contains the results of MQM activities established through PQM collaborations, and the information included is approved for dissemination by the authorities of participating countries. The Poor-Quality Medicines Alert contains information from multiple sources, either reported to or identified by PQM within the last year.
