WMA Resolution on the Designation of an Annual Medical Ethics Day


Adopted by the 54th WMA General Assembly, Helsinki, Finland, September 2003
and reaffirmed by the 194th WMA Council Session, Bali, Indonesia, April 2013 

Whereas the World Medical Association has a specific focus and function in the field of medical ethics, and came into being on 18 September 1947 during the first General Assembly, it is resolved that NMAs are encouraged to annually observe the 18th September as "Medical Ethics Day".
