MSF Norms and Standards

MSF Drugs Procurement

General principles

This Qualification Scheme was developed in the specific context of a NGO with human resources, infrastructures and an operating system that enable it to keep control over the whole supply chain, from the procurement to the dispensation of drugs.

The scope of the MSF Qualification Scheme is limited to the drugs that are to be purchased by MSF Procurement Centres and supplied by them to MSF medical programmes.  

MSF qualifications are only valid for the working context of the organization and are granted for a limited period of time.
