PAHO has published the document on Reliance for Emergency Use Authorization of Medicines and Other Health Technologies in a Pandemic (e.g. COVID-19). This document provides guidance to national regulatory authorities (NRAs) and regulatory systems on practical ways to implement reliance for emergency use of medicines and other health technologies in and around a pandemic. Note that countries use different terminologies for emergency use and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) will use the term “Emergency Use Authorization” (EUA).
