The benefits of GDF quality-assured products
GDF products enable physicians to treat patients according to the latest WHO treatment guidelines. All GDF products are on the WHO Essential Medicines List, which facilitates registration and importation. The use of Fixed Dose Combination (FDC) tablets greatly contributes to rational drug use and assists in effective implementation and expansion of the STOP TB Strategy. FDC tablets reduce the number of tablets a patient needs to take, while avoiding mono-therapy and thereby reduce the risks of developing Multidrug-Resistant TB (MDR-TB).
GDF has adopted standards for blister design which specify the layout, materials, markings and colour coding that should be used. These blister packs offer the same shelf life as loose drugs at similar or lower costs, help health workers identify the drugs needed, provide better protection for the tablets once the container is opened and can be used in all situations and health facilities.
Pre-shipment inspection is conducted on all orders by an international agency, independent of the manufacturer, to verify the shipment documentation, quantity and integrity of products, labelling and expiry dates. Randomized sampling and testing is conducted by an accredited laboratory to ensure that batches comply with established quality specifications.
For many products, GDF has multiple suppliers and cheaper prices may be available upon a request for quotation, in addition to consolidation of orders and bulk quantity discounts.
