WPRO 0079 - B
I have the honour to refer to your Government's request dated 14 October 1968, reference No. 095.7, for a consultant on drug quality control laboratories. I am happy to inform you that WHO will be able to undertake this programme in 1969.
The terms of reference of this consultant will be as follows:
1. to review broadly the present situation of drug production, marketing and importation;
2. to study legislation, laboratory facilities and arrangements available fordrug quality control and their suitability in the light of existing and projected needs;
3. to study and discuss the possibilities of WHO assistance to drug quality control activities, either on a national or inter-country basis.
Particular emphasis is placed on the provision of all available background documentation relative to the consultant's duties and on the provision of a government counterpart to work with and assist the consultant during his assignment. It would be appreciated if the name of this counterpart could be communicated to this Regional Office at an early date.
The Basic Agreement concluded between your Government and the World Health Organization on 28 September 1950 will govern the implementation of this request and the respective obligations of WHO and the Government including, inter alia, provision of transport within the country and secretarial services, if required.
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, the Government shall insure WHO, its advisers, agents, and employees for civil liability under the laws of the country in respect of any vehicles provided for use in meeting this request.
If you find these proposals acceptable, you are invited to sign five copies of this letter. Three are for the use of your Government; the remaining copies should be returned to this Office.
I have the honour to be,
Your obedient Servant,
(Sgd.) FRANCISCO J. DY, M.D.
