Frequently Asked Question

8. Can a medicine which is not registered be found on the market in Zimbabwe?

Every medicine which is on the market in Zimbabwe should have been registered or approved by MCAZ. However, there are certain instances whereby a product is not available on the market but the prescribers (doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeons) feel that and can provide evidence that it is vital for the well-being of their patients, that medicine can be procured by approved premises under provisions of Section 75 of the Medicines and Allied Substances Control Act (MASCA).
