Essential Medicines

ILDS works to ensure appropriate medicines are on the WHO Essential Medicines List

In 2017 we supported the development of dossiers on itraconazole and voriconazole and were successful in gaining their inclusion on the List in March 2017.

Our work in 2018 will focus on reviewing the Essential Medicines List to identify other medicines for skin disease, not currently under dermatological inclusions, in preparation for submission at the next List review in 2019.
