Free WHO Medicines Bookshelf CD-ROM

We are pleased to announce the latest version of the WHO Medi-
cines Bookshelf CD-ROM, containing over 350 medicines-related
publications, in English, French and Spanish, taken primarily
from materials published by the World Health Organization's De-
partment of Essential Drugs and Medicines Policy (EDM).

The Bookshelf covers:
- access to essential medicines
- rational use of medicines
- national drug policy
- quality and safety issues
- traditional medicine.

Core publications from other sources are also included on the
CD-ROM, with the kind permission of the organizations concerned.

For those in areas where Internet access is particularly slow or
is unavailable, we have designed the Bookshelf to serve as a
self-contained medicines information resource. The Library in-
cludes the WHO Model Formulary, and the Library interface serves
as a seamless gateway to a wide range of useful web sites, such
as WHO clinical guidelines and United Nations price information
resources, among many others.

The Bookshelf is available free of charge. For a copy, or ques-
tions about multiple copies and distribution, please write to:
