Availability of modern medicine increased all over the world due to huge expansion of the global Pharma market. At the same time misuse as well as accessibility of the most of essential drugs to majority of the population was denied due to cost-effectiveness of healthcare delivery combined with poor procurement policies and poor prescribing practices. During the recent years, the national list of India has assumed immense importance to improve access to medicines in India. It is therefore necessary to understand policies and guidelines followed in developing WHO essential drug list and national list of essential medicines. In this review article history of essential drug list and important inclusions in NLEM 2015 and WHO EML 2015 were highlighted.
