Description

After immunization for common childhood illnesses, appropriate use of essential medicines is one of the most cost-effective components of modern health care. (1) Many interventions for communicable and noncommunicable diseases and conditions that threaten maternal and child health rely on the use of these high-quality medicines. (2) In 1977, the World Health Organization (WHO) developed its first model list of essential medicines to provide governments with a guide for selecting the drugs and medical devices that best address public health needs. (2) National essential medicines lists give priority status to the medicines necessary to treat a country's most pressing public health problems. By focusing public sector medicine procurement and treatment on this limited set of essential medicines, resources will be maximized. The lists are, in short, a vital tool for improving and maintaining health. As a result, for more than three decades, WHO has devoted substantial effort to an essential medicines program that seeks to improve access to the most needed drugs and devices.
