National List of Essential Medicines (NLEM) 2022 was launched by Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare.

NLEM will promote cost-effective, high-quality medications and help citizens reduce their out-of-pocket healthcare costs by assuring access to inexpensive, high-quality medicines at all levels of care.

It also aids in the most effective use of healthcare resources and budgets; medication procurement policies, health insurance; enhancing prescription behaviours; medical education and training; and pharmaceutical policies.

This list includes 384 medications divided into 27 therapeutic groups, with the inclusion of 34 pharmaceuticals, and the withdrawal of 26 drugs from the previous list.
