Interaction Checker

WHO Essential Medicines

Friday 09 November 2012

The WHO Essential Medicines List identifies those medicines that satisfy the priority health care needs of the population. We noted approximately 100 key medicines (shown below) on the list that were not included on the interaction charts. These medicines have now been added to the web and app versions of the charts and we will be working in the next few months as to how they can be added to the printable version of the charts.
