We currently issue two different monthly Medical Product Quality Reports in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • COVID-19 medical products
    • This extended report covers multiple categories of SF medical products that are used or trailed for COVID-19: vaccines, diagnostics, personal protective equipment, sanitisers and disinfectants, medicines, and ventilation equipment.
    • The report is issued every month. Each issue covers the available information of one whole month. Only the first issue of the report covers data on SF medical products from multiple months, across the 6 first months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • COVID-19 vaccines
    • This report focusses only on diverted and SF COVID-19 vaccines.
    • The report is updated every month. The report is a cumulative report, it contains all the information and reports on diverted and SF COVID-19 vaccines that we have found since the beginning of the pandemic. The newly added information is highlighted and articles from the lay press that were included in the past month are described in detail.

MEDICAL PRODUCT QUALITY REPORTS - COVID-19 VACCINES 

To inform action, policy and encourage urgently needed joined-up interventions to reduce the risk of substandard falsified (SF) and diverted COVID-19 vaccines on global public health, the Medicine Quality Research Group has prepared a cumulative report summarising public domain COVID-19 vaccine issues that we are aware of.

MEDICAL PRODUCT QUALITY REPORTS - COVID-19 MEDICAL PRODUCTS

With the recent emergence of COVID-19, there has been a growing number of reports of substandard and falsified (SF) personal protective equipment, diagnostic tests, medicines, and vaccines. With the Medical Product Quality Report - COVID-19 issues, we are starting a system for reporting all that we can find in the public domain on substandard and falsified COVID-19 medical product problems. We plan to issue these reports every month hereafter as an aid to regulators, health workers, policy makers and international organisations, across the global health spectrum, in their understanding of the issues that we face.

Data in the report are from scientific literature, public alerts and warnings, and the lay press. We included especially information from our Medicine Quality Monitoring Globe, a free-to-use online tool that maps news reports worldwide of substandard and falsified medical products.

You can download our Medical Product Quality Report - COVID-19 issues, either the full report (with annexes), or the smaller file with main text only (without annexes).
