The second edition of Sources and Prices of Selected Medicines for Children offers up-to-date information on the availability and price of 240 drug items in 612 different paediatric formulations selected from the ‘WHO Model List of Essential Medicines for Children’, therapeutic food, and vitamin and mineral supplements, to treat major childhood illnesses and disease.

“An estimated 9 million children die each year from preventable and treatable causes. Improved availability and access to safe child-specific medicines is still far from reality for many children in poor countries. This one-of-its-kind publication will be useful for organizations and personnel involved in procurement to identify where medicines may be found and what they cost,"
said Hans Hogerzeil, Director Essential Medicines and Pharmaceutical Policies at WHO.
