Excerpt
INTRODUCTION In fulfilling its constitutional role as the directing and co-ordinating authority on international health work, the World Health Organization has since its inception devoted considerable attention to the problems of influenza. Its Expert Committee on Influenza has recently been considering* how best to promote international collaboration in the control of this disease, while since 1947 the WHO influenza programme, details of which will be found in an article by Dr. A. XI.-M. Payne in this volume, has been developing rapidly. Under this project 54 laboratories in 42 countries have voluntarily co-operated in an international programme of research, which could not be undertaken on this scale in any other way.
