What is The Handbook of WMA Policy?
The Handbook of WMA Policy is issued as a record of the World Medical Association's stance on a variety of ethical and social issues. The issues are usually important factors in human health and are relevant to physicians world-wide. Some of the Declarations have needed revision in the light of new knowledge, or to improve the sometimes awkward wording, inevitable when people of different tongues deliberate together. This dynamic process shows that the WMA is a constantly evolving, unique organization, ideal to act as a protector of patients' best interests, and as advocates for the medical profession.
