Sourcing & Management of Health Products

Other Products

Programs using Global Fund grant money to purchase goods and services must comply with the Global Fund’s procurement policy. There are also quality assurance requirements, including for the procurement of other health products such as nets and condoms.

For long-lasting insecticidal nets and other pesticides, countries should refer to the list of products recommended by the World Health Organization Pesticide Evaluation Scheme (WHOPES). This applies to:

  • Nets
  • Indoor residual spraying
  • Retreatment of nets
  • Mosquito larvicides

Condoms purchased by countries must be compliant with the specifications outlined by WHO for both male and female condoms.

For any other health products, countries should select from a list of prequalified products (where applicable) and should only choose products that comply with the quality standards of the country where the products are to be used.
