Good practices for International Medicine Donations

Medicine donations must be based on the expressed needs of the recipient country and comply with several quality standards. Donated medicines must be approved for use in the recipient country, have at least 15 months until expiration, and include labeling in the local language with information like the generic name, batch number, manufacturer, and expiration date. The donation should be planned jointly between the donor and recipient, accompany relevant documentation, and the donor is responsible for transportation and storage costs unless otherwise agreed.
