Excerpt
The meeting was opened by Dr N.G. Khaltaev on behalf of the Director-General. Dr Khaltaev welcomed the members of the Task Force to Geneva. Dr Khaltaev summarized the prepared remarks which noted that the rheumatic diseases were important to world health because they limit work performance and social integration. Osteoporosis has become the focus of public awareness as an important disease in public health, particularly because of high fracture rates and subsequent morbidity and mortality. Dr K.D. Muirden, President of ILAR, was elected Chair, Dr J.P. Edmonds, Secretary General of ILAR, was elected Vice-Chair, and both Dr P.M. Brooks and Dr C.H. Goldsmith were elected Rapporteurs. Dr Muirden extended thanks to Dr N.G. Khaltaev and his staff for their hard work in helping to coordinate the meeting. Dr A.S. Russell, Treasurer of ILAR, was most helpful in coordinating the relationships with the pharmaceutical industry.
