E-DRUG: WHO 18th Model medicines List and 4th Model List for children available
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 19th Expert Committee on Selection and Use of Essential Medicines met in 
WHO Headquarters in Geneva from 8 ? 12 April 2013 to review and update the 17th 
WHO Model List of Essential Medicines and the 3rd list of WHO Essential 
Medicines for Children. The committee considered 52 applications and 15 reviews 
that had been submitted.

The 18th WHO Model List of Essential Medicines and the 4th list of WHO 
Essential Medicines for Children was finalised by the Committee at the end of 
their deliberations. An Executive Summary of the proceedings of the meeting was 
also finalised.
Due to the large number of applications and reviews the report of the meeting 
could not be finalised at the same time. It is anticipated that the final 
report will become available in the 3rd quarter of 2013.

As the WHO Model Lists have an important bearing on the public health 
activities, the Executive Summary and the 2 lists have being published on the 
Essential Medicines and Health Products (EMP) website.
