Expert Review Panel

The Expert Review Panel is a group of independent experts who review the potential risks and benefits associated with the use of finished pharmaceutical or diagnostic products and make recommendations to the Global Fund. It is hosted by the Quality and Safety of Medicines department of WHO.

We regularly publish invitations on this page for manufacturers to submit their products for review by the Expert Review Panel.

Submissions should include the following:

  • A copy of approval or registration certificate or marketing authorization from a stringent regulatory authority;
  • A copy of their Good Manufacturing Practice Certificate issued by a stringent regulatory authority, a member of the Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation scheme, or the WHO Prequalification Programme certifying the compliance of the manufacturing site with WHO good manufacturing practice requirements
