New blood pressure drugs on the @WHO Essential Medicines List is an important signal to health systems: the World Health Organization (WHO) has added four fixed-dose combinations (FDCs) of anti-hypertensive medications to its updated Essential Medicines List (EML). FDCs, which combine two or more medications into one pill, have been proven to be beneficial to patients and health systems alike. By adding these life-saving medications to the EML, WHO has taken an important step toward improving both the accessibility of these drugs and patient’s adherence to treatment regimens, bringing us closer to achieving worldwide control of high blood pressure. @ResolveTSL https://tinyurl.com/y3xvky2x
