E-DRUG:New resolution on rational use of medicines at the WHA

Dear E-druggers

For your information, this year at the World Health Assembly in May 2007, a new 
resolution was passed on rational use of medicines. The resolution calls for a 
cross-cutting, sector-wide policy approach to health systems and medicines in 
order to promote rational use of medicines. You can find the relevant documents 
on the WHO website as follows:

Resolution WHA60.16

Secretariat's report A60/24

Draft implementation plan for the resolution presented to the 15th Expert 
Committee for Selection and Use of Essential Medicines in 2007

Unedited report of the 15th Expert Committee - section 3.12 on the resolution 
on rational use of medicines in March 2007

Best wishes
