The PQM program helps low- and middle-income countries strengthen health systems by building capacity in the regulation and manufacture of medicines. This helps increase availability of lifesaving, quality-assured medicines that are vital to accelerating universal health coverage, ensuring healthy lives, and promoting well-being for all people of all ages. PQM is USAID’s intervention for ensuring the quality, safety, and efficacy of medicines. Learn more about how PQM achieves these objectives:
