Drug donations are usually given in response to acute emergencies, but they can also be part of development aid.
Donations may be given directly by governments, by non-governmental organisations, as corporate donations (direct or through private voluntary organisations), or as private donations to single health facilities.
Although there are legitimate differences between these donations, basic rules should apply to them all.
This common core of « good donation practice » is the basis for new guidelines which have recently been issued by the World Health Organisation after consultation with all relevant United Nations agencies, the Red Cross, and other major international agencies active in humanitarian emergency relief.
This article summarises the need for such guidelines, the development process, the core principles, and the guidelines themselves and gives practical advice to recipients and donor agencies.
