Medical devices

Medical devices by health care facility


The documents presented here contain a list of medical equipment typically required to provide health services in different types of health care facilities (health post, health centre, district hospital, provincial hospital, specialized hospital). The medical equipment is listed in conjunction with the two most commonly-used classifying codes in international nomenclature, UMDNS and GMDN. These codes allow unambiguous identification and classification of equipment worldwide.

These lists are working documents and are only a current snapshot of ongoing work being conducted at WHO. The information here has not been reviewed by a committee of clinical experts and must be adapted to the specific conditions or settings where they will be applied.
