WHO Expert Committee Report
Today the report from the WHO Expert Committee on Problems Related to Alcohol Consumption was presented. The Commitee urges the World Health Organization to continue to play a leading role in coordinating a global response to the global nature of alcohol problems. It also recommends that WHO continue its practice of no collaboration with the alcohol industry.
The expert committee is an international group of experts that provides WHO with the latest scientific and technical advice on a broad range of medical and public health subjects. Members of such expert groups are all drawn from the expert advisory panels and serve in their personal capacities rather than as representatives of governments or other bodies.
The Expert Committee on Problems Related to Alcohol Consumption met in Geneva in October last year, and the report from the meeting can be downloaded here.
