Abstract

National policy on essential medicines is one of the main pillars of global health agenda. The Nairobi Conference on the Rational Use of Drugs, held in 1985, was the first international conference on policies on essential medicines. Over the years, World Health Organization has widely supported most low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the development and subsequent implementation of national policies on essential medicines.Implementation of these policies has resulted in their easy availability, better affordability, and better quality in LMICs.
