Abstract

This paper proposes a market shaping strategy to improve the quality of magnesium sulfate. The strategy suggests that international partners work with national procurement agencies to improve procurement guidelines and procedures to ensure that only quality drugs are accepted into countries. With stricter enforcement of national guidelines, and routine quality audits of drugs in the country, procurers will ensure the drugs they procure are quality assured. If there is a WHO-prequalified drug, this will assist procurement agencies in ensuring they are making the right selection, but quality can be assured in other ways.
