WHO Prequalification

We have actively encouraged the local pharmaceutical industry to work towards attaining WHO prequalification. WHO prequalification will facilitate access to medicines that meet unified standards of quality, safety and efficacy for HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. This will afford Nigerian pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to participate in international bidding of drugs and other pharmaceutical products. This will in turn generate revenue for Nigeria and employment opportunities First Medicals, manufacturers of auto disable syringes in Port Harcourt , Rivers State, has obtained WHO prequalification for their products. This means the products have attained international standards and will promote access to quality products in the industry.
