Over the past ten years many new tests and techniques were validated and made available for clinical and research purposes. Prompted by these considerations, WHO established an Editorial Board (EB) to review all the methods described in the 5th Edition of the Manual, with a view to endorsing, changing, or updating them.
From 16 March up to Friday 9 April 2021, the draft manual will be up for public review. The review will be guided by an online questionnaire. Participants will be asked questions about, comprehensiveness, clarity, usefulness, consistency, general content, the desired form/design and supporting visual materials, as well as dissemination.
Please read the instructions:
Public comments will be accepted through Friday, April 9, 2021.
