The School of International Nonproprietary Names
(2019; 5 pages) [French]


In 1950 WHO established the INN Programme to provide a common language for people all over the world to work together for the safe and effective use of medicines.

The main objective of the programme is to define a single, unique, globally accepted name for each pharmaceutical substance.

The INN Programme is now launching a virtual school to mainstream INN and contribute to better treatment outcomes and patient safety globally.
