[Correspondence] Time for WHO to renew its commitment to health research

WHO’s global Advisory Committee on Health Research (ACHR)—established in 1959 in Geneva, Switzerland, as the Advisory Committee on Medical Research (ACMR) and renamed ACHR in 1986—is one of the oldest institutions in the organisation. After establishment of the global committee, ACHRs were established in all of WHO’s regional offices. As it approaches its 60th anniversary, the global ACHR can be proud of its many achievements. However, the committee has not convened in the past 7 years, with the last full meeting held in 2010.
