WHO’S revised drug strategy, as adopted in Resolution WHA39.27 of the Thirty-ninth World Health Assembly in 1986, calls for the preparation of model prescribing information which is being developed to complement WHO’s Model List of Essential Drugs.1 The objective is to provide source material for adaptation by national authorities, particularly in developing countries, that wish to develop national drug formularies, drug compendia and similar material.

1 WHO Technical Report Series, No. 770, 1988 (The use of essential drugs: third report of the WHO Expert Committee).

The information is to be regarded as illustrative rather than normative. It is appreciated that it is not possible to develop an information sheet on a specific drug that is appropriate to circumstances prevailing in each of WHO’s Member States and that some countries have already formally adopted texts of their own that have a statutory connotation.

This volume has been reviewed by individual internationally accredited experts and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists, which stands ready to provide advice to any national administration on how a basic anaesthetic service may best be organized. For practical details of anaesthetic techniques suitable for use in hospitals of first referral, the reader is referred to Dobson, M.B., Anaesthesia at the district hospital (Geneva, World Health Organization, 1988).

Drug dosage

Most drug doses are given per kilogram of body weight or as fixed doses calculated for adults of 60 kg.

Storage conditions

Readers are referred to The International Pharmacopoeia, 3rd edition, vol. 1 & vol. 2 (Geneva, World Health Organization, 1979 & 1981) for definitions concerning containers for drugs.
