This virtual seminar, presented by Dr. Nav Persaud asks, “Can transparency and accountability improve national essential medicines lists?”
About this Event
Essential medicines lists in more than 100 countries prioritize access to some treatments. But some withdrawn or banned medicines are included in national essential medicines lists. Information about why specific medicines are on national essential medicines lists and effective processes for removing medicines could help improve health.
