Tools and resources
IDDO is committed to providing practical tools and services to support the collection of disease characterisation data and develop quality evidence on optimal treatment and response to emerging infections. Our resources help researchers gather and present evidence in a standardised way, and are intended to help facilitate a much faster, better coordinated and more effective response to future outbreaks. To find a wide selection of free online tools, services and resources that support malaria researchers to collect reliable and comprehensive evidence, visit the WWARN Toolkit.
Medicines Regulatory Authorities (MRAs) are the keystone for the majority of interventions to prevent, detect and remove poor quality medicines before they reach patients. Innovative portable devices hold promise for empowering medicine inspectors in screening medicine quality in supply systems. However, regulators lack information on their performance, limitations and cost-effectiveness. This project was undertaken as an independent evaluation and comparison of devices to provide evidence to allow MRAs to decide whether these new technologies are appropriate for screening of medicines quality in their countries.
