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:
