As part of PQMD’s ongoing commitment to building knowledge in the field, we maintain access to a wealth of information resources related to the field of donating and delivering high quality medicines and medical products and services to assist communities suffering from the effects of disasters as well as chronic and devastating diseases.

In addition to PQMD’s Guidelines for Quality Medical Product Donations you can find articles, case studies, scholarly publications, study results, guidelines and advice from local, national, and international organizations, and much more on a variety of topics associated with the work of PQMD and its members.

The issues that can be explored using these resources range from the valuation of donated drugs and services to the delicate art of cross-sector partnerships to lessons learned in disaster response, and go well beyond.
