Per the WHO (World Health Organization), there are a list of "Essential Medicines" such as those listed on their Wikipedia page.

  1. Is there a database link for this directly other than Wikipedia?
  2. What is the difference between the "Children" list and the regular list. Is one a complete superset of the other? I noticed the "Children's" list is much larger.

I would like to make an open JSON database of some sort regarding a more easily accessible and organized way of accessing this data in a Postgres database or something. What do you know like this that exists?
