STOCRIN, CRIXIVAN and ATRIPLA have received World Health Organization (WHO) prequalification. Merck is committed to working with the WHO for the prequalification of ISENTRESS. WHO prequalification verifies that medicines meet the quality, safety and efficacy requirements of UN agencies, including UNICEF and the Pan American Health Organization—an important step toward providing global access.
