WHA/EB documentation on Genetics

Since the 1950's, WHO Member States have consistently expressed their concern and interest in genetics and genomic technologies as well as the ethical, legal and social implications they raise. This database facilitates easy access to all the official documentation from the World Health Assembly (WHA) as well as the Executive Board (EB) that have addressed genetics in the context of noncommunicable and communicable diseases, bioethics, research and biotechnology, and the ACHR Genomics and world health report.
