Medicines are an essential land cost-effective tool of health care and an
important element of health systems. The number of medicines is steadily
rising yet for millions of people worldwide essential medicines remain
unavailable and unaffordable as financial resources available for health
services remain limited. Rational management of medicines is becoming
