The WHO Essential Medicines List (EML) defines the minimum medicine needs for a basic healthcare system. It lists the most efficacious, safe and cost-effective medicines for priority conditions. They select which conditions to include based on patients' current and forecasted needs and the potential for safe and cost‐effective treatment.
We regularly review the EML to identify other medicines for skin disease that we believe should be added to the list.
