1. The Model List should maintain its current system of section numbering. However, in addition to its usual presentation, the printed version of the Model List should also be presented according to the 5-level Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC) classification system.
2. WHO should actively pursue ways and means of putting relevant information on the ATC classification in the public domain.
3. The “core” and “complementary” lists should be maintained, but the two lists should be presented separately (see also section 8.7, recommendation 3).
4. The Department of Vaccines and Biologicals, WHO should synthesize its current recommendations on vaccines into a format that is compatible with the Model List of Essential Medicines, and present this summary, with supporting evidence, to the Committee for consideration for adoption as part of the Model List. The EPI vaccines and vaccine combinations should also be included in this systematic review.
