Improving Access to Essential Cardiovascular Medicines

The Center for Global Cardiovascular Health aims to improve access to essential cardiovascular medicines by working through the World Health Organization and national model lists of essential medicines. Dr. Mark Huffman has contributed through the addition of clopidogrel and direct oral anticoagulants to the World Health Organization list of essential medicines, among other changes. An independent study course is offered through the Program in Public Health for students to develop and submit applications to the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines on a biennial basis.
