Medicine Registration Harmonization (MRH)

The EAC MRH Project is supported by the World Bank and is part of the global effort to harmonise medicines regulations. It is envisioned that the following benefits will accrue from the implementation of the EAC MRH Project:

  • Harmonised registration dossier format and technical requirements;
  • Increased technical capacity and efficient use of resources;
  • Increased applications for registration from manufacturers;
  • Cost savings;
  • Greater access to good quality and affordable medicines; and
  • Greater impact on efforts towards reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with regards to the three health-related MDGs (4 = to reduce child mortality, 5 = to improve maternal health and 6 = to combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and other diseases).
