Establishing a list of essential medicines was aimed to improve the availability of affordable medicines for the world's poor. Access to essential medicines is a major determinant of health outcomes but access to essential medicines in developing countries like India is not adequate. So, in this review we have tried to present the Indian scenario in respect to availability and accessibility of essential medicines over last one decade. To enhance the credibility of Indian healthcare system, procurement and delivery systems of essential medicines have to be strengthened through government commitment, careful selection, adequate public sector financing, efficient distribution systems, control on taxes and duties, and inculcating a culture of rational use of medicines in current and future prescribers. The selection of essential medicines is only the first step to improve the quality of health care. It should be followed by the appropriate use of the selected medicines so rational use of drugs concept was introduced. Irrational use of Medicines is a global phenomenon, Rational use of drugs may be defined as patients receive medications appropriate to their clinical needs, in doses that meet their own individual requirements, for an adequate period of time, and the lowest cost to them and their community. Overuse, poly pharmacy and incorrect use of drugs are the most common problems of drug use today. Irrational use of drugs may result due to various reasons at various levels including the prescribing errors and over the counter drugs. Irrational use of medicines may lead to serious negative health and economic consequences. Many irrational drug combinations are available in Indian market. Proper implementation of rational use of drugs will improve the quality of life and result in better community healthcare.

Keywords: Essential medicines, Rational use.
