[Correspondence] Revising the ICD: explaining the WHO approach

From the late 19th century, the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) has been the backbone of cause of death statistics. Over time, country uses of the ICD have moved beyond tracking mortality, and now include morbidity statistics, health financing, research, and clinical care. Regular revisions of the ICD are necessary to accommodate advances in medical knowledge. The product of the ongoing revision will be suitable for a digital environment and include electronic tools for coding, browsing, translation, review, and mapping.
