Under the UN initiative for Universal Healthcare Coverage, a healthcare system can serve at its best only with access to right medicines and health products. As per WHO access to right medicines can be best ensured by proper selection and use of medicines, affordable prices for quality medicines and products, sustainable financing and reliable health system. Pharmaceuticals (medicinal products, vaccines, contraceptives, diagnostics, and medical supplies) constitute second highest item of expenditure after the manpower in any given health facility/hospital. Irrational use of medicines is prevalent at all levels of health care leading to wastage of scarce resources as well as reduced medication safety in patients. Emergence of antimicrobial resistance continues to pose a global problem in handling the management of infections. Counterfeit and substandard medicines also create an impediment in access to quality medicines. Medication and pharmaceutical management in hospitals can be one of the most cost-effective measures for appropriate use of scarce health care resources. Medication safety in patients can be best ensured if rational and appropriate uses of medicines are practiced. Medication management through a functional Drug and Therapeutics Committee (DTC) which is also referred to as Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee (PTC) can provide an effective structure and tool to bring together all the relevant people to work jointly for promoting more efficient and rational use of medicines. For accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare (NABH) in India and by many accreditation boards in other countries, requirement of a functional DTC/PTC is mandatory.
