Improving access to safe, effective, and quality medicines and other health technologies is a critical public health priority and a fundamental requisite for universal health. National regulatory systems play a key part in a country’s health system by overseeing the safety, quality, and efficacy of all health technologies, including pharmaceuticals, vaccines, blood and blood products, and medical devices, among others. The aim of this document is to better understand the regulatory landscape of the Americas, with an emphasis on Latin American National Regulatory Authorities of Reference. This report presents data and analysis corresponding to essential regulatory functions and systems foundations to understand current practices, identify critical issues, and present a series of recommendations for action. The report also includes an overview of the market outlook and economic integration mechanisms in the Americas and their influence on regulatory policy and pharmaceutical trade. In addition, the report includes a supplement to describe salient regulatory emergency responses to the COVID-19 pandemic in the Americas. Through this report, the Pan American Health Organization aims to increase the understanding of national regulatory remits and capacity in the Americas, raise awareness and appreciation of the regional regulatory progress and challenges, identify the regulatory issues emerging markets will bring, and highlight opportunities for evidence-based regulatory system strengthening.
