Health Products Policy and Standards in Kenya

In Kenya, health products policy and standards are overseen by several government agencies, including the Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB), the National Quality Control Laboratory (NQCL), and the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS). At Advanced Medical Solutions Limited we ensure that all our products meets the regulator’s cluster.

The PPB is responsible for the registration, licensing, and regulation of all pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and other health products. The board ensures that these products meet the required standards of quality, safety, and efficacy before they can be approved for sale and distribution in Kenya.

The NQCL, on the other hand, is responsible for the testing and analysis of health products to ensure that they meet the required quality standards. The laboratory conducts regular inspections and sampling of health products, including drugs, vaccines, and medical devices, to ensure that they are safe and effective.

KEBS is responsible for the development and implementation of standards for various products, including health products. The agency works closely with the PPB and the NQCL to ensure that all health products meet the required standards before they are allowed into the market.

In addition, the Ministry of Health also plays a critical role in the development and implementation of health products policies and standards. The ministry is responsible for providing strategic direction and guidance to the various government agencies involved in the regulation and oversight of health products in Kenya.

Overall, the government of Kenya has put in place robust policies and standards to ensure that all health products in the country meet the required quality, safety, and efficacy standards. These efforts are aimed at protecting the health and well-being of Kenyans and promoting the growth of the healthcare sector in the country.
