Essential Drugs in Brief No. 006 - 2002

April 2002

A bulletin on major WHO Country and Regional work in the field of Essential Drugs and Medicines Policy

The purpose of Essential drugs in brief is to share information on the latest country support provided or coordinated by the extended Drug Action Programme team (country, regional and HQ offices).

It is an informal instrument aiming to share our experiences with colleagues within and outside WHO, who are active in the implementation of national drug policies at national and regional levels.
