Prequalification of in vitro diagnostics

The World Health Organization (WHO) Prequalification of In Vitro Diagnostics (IVDs) Programme aims to promote and facilitate access to safe, appropriate and affordable in vitro diagnostics of good quality in an equitable manner. Focus is placed on in vitro diagnostics for priority diseases and their suitability for use in resource-limited settings.
