Fully dependent on imports, Lao PDR faced serious shortages and price fluctuations of medical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic highlighted the critical need for quality control of these products in the market, to an extent that this need is one of the challenges for sustainable socio-economic development in Laos. Hence, the Government of Lao PDR aspires to promote high-quality local production of PPE and to improve the quality of the items available in the market.
Indeed, the quality of imported and domestically produced medical devices and supplies in the market varies currently significantly due to the limited regulation and surveillance capacity. The government acknowledges the need to enhance its regulatory capacity by developing PPE Manufacture Establishment Guidelines, National Medical Device Registration Regulations, and PPE Inspection Guidelines and tools.
In this context, the “CHINA-UNDP Triangular Cooperation Response to COVID-19 in the Asia and the Pacific Region” project is an UNDP-supported project aiming to develop the capacity of a state-owned factory for the first large-scale domestic production of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) through material and technical support. The project also aims at establishing a quality management system through the development of standards and guidelines, as well as developing the capacity of the Government.
The five outputs of the project are :
Output 1: Local PPE quality management system is enhanced
Output 2: Local PPE production capacity is enhanced
Output 3: PPE quality surveillance capacity is strengthened at the national and provincial levels
Output 4: Market access and management system for PPE products are strengthened
Output 5: Communication and project management of the project at the national level
The project’s objective is to strengthen the COVID-19 preparedness, response and recovery capacities at the Asia-Pacific regional level, focusing on four countries (Bangladesh, Maldives, Lao PDR and Pakistan) with the aim to minimize and address the regression of SDG attainment and to enhance these countries’ socio-economic development. In Laos, the objective of this project is to enhance local PPE production and supply capacity and to ensure the quality of PPE for COVID-19 and other future pandemics.
To achieve the overall objective of the project, under Output 3, the National Center for Food and Drug Analysis, Ministry of Health of Lao PDR (hereinafter referred to as NCFDA) plans to conduct a training of trainers (TOT) on the general requirements for surgical face mask and alcohol hand gel testing, in order to build up capacity of PPE testing in central level and strengthen to provincial level across the country in the future. In this context, UNDP Lao PDR is seeking an experienced expert to assist NCFDA on the TOT on general requirements for surgical face mask and alcohol hand gel testing
