The World Health Organization recommends a focus on the six building blocks of a health system in order to strength health systems. The focus of this study was medicines, vaccines and technologies, with rational use of medicines of the psychotropic variety being the area of interest. An equity, quality, affordability and efficiency of the health care system hinders due to inappropriate use of medicines. It is evaluated that, in low-income and middle-income countries, 80% people with genuine mental issues do not get the treatment that they require. Lack of access to psychotropic medicine may be attributed to irrational use of these medicines and is seen to lead to inflated treatment costs, mortality, and morbidity and may be reason for undesirable drug reactions or discouraging psychosocial impact.
