[e-drug] proposed WHO EML changes 2005

E-DRUG: proposed WHO EML changes 2005
-------------------------------------

Dear E-druggers,

The 14th Expert Committee on the Selection and Use of Essential Medicines will 
meet 7-11 March 2005
www.who.int/medicines/organization/par/edl/expcom14/expertcomm14.shtml

A bit 'hidden' behind the draft agenda, I found:
- 8 applications for NEW Essential medicines
- 34 proposed deletions
- 2 proposed reinstatements

See below the list of medicines proposed. Many have motivations that can be 
downloaded.
Any E-drugger who wants to debate a change?
The deadline for sending comments to WHO is 30 October!
E-drug won't close...
