  • 4. PREAMBLEEssential medicines are those that satisfy the priority healthcare needs ofmajority of the population. The essential medicines list needs to be countryspecific addressing the disease burden of the nation and the commonly usedmedicines at primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare levels. The medicines inNational List of Essential Medicines (NLEM) should be available at affordablecosts and with assured quality. The medicines used in the various national healthprogrammes, emerging and reemerging infections should be addressed in the list.The Government of India, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MOHFW) ismandated to ensure the quality healthcare system by assuring availability of safeand efficacious medicines for its population.The primary purpose of NLEM is to promote rational use of medicines consideringthe three important aspects i.e. cost, safety and efficacy. Furthermore itpromotes prescription by generic names. Healthcare delivery institutions, healthinsurance bodies, standards setting institutions for medicines, medicine pricecontrol bodies, health economists and other healthcare stakeholders will beimmensely benefitted in framing their policies. Page 4 of 123
  • 5. The NLEM 2011 has been prepared after several rounds of wide consultationswith experts of different disciplines from different parts of the country and fromvarious organizations.The NLEM is a dynamic document and feedback from all stakeholders is welcomewhich will help in its revision at regular basis.The core committee of NLEM 2011 would like to place on record its appreciationfor the subject experts who made a significant contribution in revision andupdating the list of essential medicines of India. Page 5 of 123
  • 6. EXECUTIVE SUMMARYThe National list of essential medicines is one of the key instruments in balancedhealthcare delivery system of a country which inter alia includes accessible,affordable quality medicine at all the primary, secondary, tertiary levels ofhealthcare. Realizing this GOI, MOHFW decided to have its own essentialmedicines list. The first National List of Essential Medicines of India was preparedand released in 1996. This list was subsequently revised in 2003.To address the issues of changing disease prevalence, treatment modalities,introduction of newer medicines and identification of unacceptable risk-benefitprofile as well as therapeutic profile of some medicines, the GOI, MOHFWconsidered the need for updating the NLEM.Revision of NLEM was also based on the two important national referencedocuments i.e., Indian Pharmacopeia 2010 and National Formulary of India, 4thEdition, 2010. While the former deals with the standards of identity, purity andstrength of medicines the later provides the information on rational use ofmedicines particularly for healthcare professionals.

  • 7. In order to revise the NLEM 2003, a core committee was constituted vide orderno: 12-01/ Essential Medicines/ 08-DC dated 6th July 2010 GOI, MOHFW withfollowing members.  Prof. Y. K. Gupta, Head, Department of Pharmacology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi  Prof. S.K. Sharma, Head, Department of Medicine, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi  Dr. T.S. Sidhu, Medical Superintendent, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, New Delhi  Dr. A. K. Harit (Chief Medical Officer) representing DDG (M), Dte. GHS, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, New Delhi  Dr. D. Kanungo, Addl. DG (Stores) Dte.

Tanwar, National AIDS Control Organization, New Delhi  Mr. V. K. Tyagi, Deputy Industrial Advisor, Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, New Delhi Page 7 of 123
  • 8.  Dr. G. N. Singh, Secretary-cum-Scientific Director, Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission, Ghaziabad  Dr. Surinder Singh, Drugs Controller General (India), Dte.GHS, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, New DelhiThe first meeting of the core committee of NLEM was held at CDSCO on July 22,2010. The meeting was initiated by DCGI, Dr. Surinder Singh, Dr. Y. K. Gupta,Professor & Head, Department of Pharmacology, AIIMS, New Delhi wasunanimously nominated as chairman of the Committee.During this meeting the core committee was informed that the CDSCO hadalready taken an initiative in this direction and organized a workshop entitled“Expert Group Meeting on Revision and Updating of the National List of EssentialMedicines” on September 16, 2009 in collaboration with Department ofPharmacology, AIIMS and WHO India Office. The workshop was attended byrepresentatives from the following: CDSCO, Ministry of Health; WHO; All IndiaInstitute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi; Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission;Indian Council of Medical Research and experts of different disciplines fromleading medical and pharmacy institutions of the country.The issue of updating NLEM was also deliberated in a dedicated session duringthe Annual Conference of Indian Pharmacological Society, December 2009 at Page 8 of 123
  • 9. Kolkata and the session was chaired by Prof. Y K Gupta, AIIMS and Dr. KWeerasuriya, WHO-SEARO. The core committee took note of the proceedings ofthese two meetings while revising the NLEM.In this core committee meeting it was deliberated that although WHO hasprepared an updated list of “Essential Medicines”, it cannot be adopted as such.The NLEM of India should be country specific considering the disease prevalence,cost effectiveness of Medicines etc in the country.In the meeting the criteria for inclusion/ deletion of medicines were developedand a road map for the revision and updating of NLEM, 2003 was drawn.Sh. V. K. Tyagi from Department of Pharmaceuticals (DoP), Ministry of Chemicals& Fertilizers emphasized the importance of NLEM in view of the directions of theHon’ble Supreme Court of India. He also mentioned that DoP may rely on theNLEM prepared by MOH &FW for price fixation.During the meeting it was felt that opinion/views may be taken from across thecountry by organizing brainstorming regional workshops. However, consideringthe logistics and time constraints it was decided that a National consultationmeet should be organized in Delhi inviting experts from various specialties andfrom different parts of the country. Page 9 of 123
  • 10. Accordingly “National Consultation Meet for Revision of National List of EssentialMedicines” was organized by Department of Pharmacology, AIIMS & CentralDrugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO), Ministry of Health and FamilyWelfare on December 3-4, 2010. The meet was supported by WHO India office.Experts from different disciplines from medical and pharmaceutical institutes,hospitals from across the country and concerned government agenciesparticipated. After initial briefing, four groups were formed according totherapeutic areas. The groups were asked to specifically give thereasons/evidence which guided their decision regardingaddition/deletion/alteration. Subsequently the recommendations of theindividual groups were discussed in the open house. Thereafter the draftrecommendations of the Workshop were prepared with general consensus.The recommendations of the Workshop were further deliberated upon by theExpert Core Committee on 4th Jan 2011 and 31st Jan 2011 at CDSCO. The revisedNLEM 2011 has thus been prepared.The Expert Core Committee recommended that all the medicines which are beingprovided under various National Health Programmes are considered as essentialmedicines. Page 10 of 123
  • 11. Salient features of NLEM 2011:The medicines have been categorized according to therapeutic area. Therefore itis possible that a medicine with more than one indication appears in more thanone category.The issue of mentioning the strength of the medicine dose was deliberated. Thecommittee took the considered view that the strength should be mentioned inthe NLEM.For essentiality of requirement the medicines have been categorized as follows: - P, S and T denote essentiality at Primary, Secondary and Tertiary levels respectively while P, S, T (U in NLEM 2003) indicates essentiality at all the levels.A total of 348 medicines (excluding repetitions) are present in NLEM 2011. In theNLEM 2011, 181 medicines fall under the category of P, S and T, 106 medicinesfall under the category of S, T while 61 medicines are categorized as T only. Incomparison to NLEM 2003, number of medicines deleted is 47 and 43 medicineshave been added. Page 11 of 123

  • 15. POTENTIAL USES OF NLEMThe concept of essential medicines, first introduced by WHO in 1977, has now been adopted bymany countries, non-governmental organizations and international non-profit supply agencies.The list is considered to include the most cost-effective medicines for a particular indication. Itis developed in concordance with the standard treatment guidelines keeping in mind thehealthcare needs of the majority of the population. Careful selection of a limited range ofessential medicines results in a higher quality of care, better management of medicines andmore cost-effective use of health resources.The list of essential medicines guides the hospital drug policies, procurement and supply ofmedicines in public sector, medicine cost reimbursement and medicine donations. It helps inmonitoring the pricing of medicines. The list serves as a reference document for correct dosageform and strength for prescribing. Preference is given to single drug formulations as opposed tofixed dose combinations where appropriate. Hence use of NLEM is expected to improveprescribing practices as well as the health outcomes. The appropriate use of medicines selectedin the NLEM promotes rational use of medicines. Such rational use of medicines, especiallyantimicrobial drugs, reduces development of drug resistance. The list also serves as a referencefor assessing the healthcare access of the populace. Lastly, NEML serves as a tool for publiceducation and training of healthcare providers. Page 15 of 123
