2010.10.02 - IMRES receives USAID approval

Following the recent SCMS and OFDA inspections, we are very proud to report that IMRES has been added to the approved wholesaler list for USAID and OFDA programs.

''IMRES has assured USAID that all pharmaceuticals and medical commodities sold by or through IMRES are manufactured to meet or exceed internationally accepted Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and are procured, stored and distributed following internationally accepted Good Distribution Practices (GDPs).''

This approval will allow us to extend our services in providing healthcare to the developing world even further, engaging in new projects and responding to emergency situations on a larger scale.
