Methodology of identifying websites
The MRA websites were identified through the following means:
– the list of 53 websites available from the WHO study of 2001;
– available lists of MRAʹs in Europe
(http://www.emea.europa.eu/Inspections/Links.html), Africa
(http://www.remed.org/html/direction_de_la_pharmacie_et_d.html) and the
Americas (http://www.portaleami.org/directAutorid/home.htm);
– an Internet search on (country name) plus DRA / drug authority / autoridad
de medicamentos / autorité des medicaments, ministry of health / ministère
de santé / ministerio de salud / saude;
– contacting the National Programme Officers (NPOʹs) and WHO Regional
Offices of the Essential Medicines and Pharmaceutical Policies department
(EMP).
Links that were not working and websites that only mentioned the name of a MRA
were not listed as MRA websites (links in black).
The existence or nonexistence of websites could not be confirmed for some countries.
No website identified means that through the above search methodology, no website
was found. Website does not exist means that National Programme Officers have
confirmed that there is no website.
Acronyms:
MoH = Ministry of Health
MRA = Medicines Regulatory Authority
