World Medical Association’s Regional Expert Meeting in Asia on the WMA Declaration of Helsinki
9-11 December 2022 at the Hilton Tel Aviv Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel

The World Medical Association (WMA) invites you to attend its Regional Expert Meeting in Asia on the WMA Declaration of Helsinki, which will take place on 9 – 11 December 2022, in Tel Aviv, Israel at the Hilton Tel Aviv Hotel.

The Declaration of Helsinki on the ethical principles for medical research involving human subjects was first adopted by the 18th WMA General Assembly in 1964. Since this time the declaration has undergone several revisions in order to keep it up to date.

At the WMA Council meeting in April 2022, a workgroup was established to begin another revision of this important document. The American Medical Association (AMA) is leading this process.

The first regional expert meeting to discuss this revision will be held in Tel Aviv, Israel. It is co-organized by the Israeli Medical Association (IsMA), the AMA and the WMA. This high-level discussion will bring regional and international experts together to consider the first steps of the revision. Please note that this event will be held in English, and it is open to all WMA members and invited guests.

The registration, hotel reservations and updates about the program and speakers are available through this link. For any inquiries, please contact the WMA secretariat at secretariat@wma.net.

We hope to see you in Tel Aviv in December.
