The Government of Madagascar is addressing several pressing health issues, including high levels of malaria, child and maternal mortality, and an unmet need for family planning products. PQM+ is assisting the National Medicines Regulatory Authority (l’Agence du Médicament de Madagascar, AMM) to strengthen the capacity of the National Quality Control Laboratory towards ISO 17025: 2017 accreditation and systems for post-marketing surveillance of medicines in the country. In addition, PQM+ is working to improve the national regulatory inspection system, particularly regarding storage and distribution sites for medical products used in the national malaria, maternal and child health, and family planning and reproductive health programs.
