WHO Initiatives and Global Health Threats.

This image, which shows the World Health Organization headquarters in Geneva, takes its theme from the paper by Holger J. Schünemann and colleagues Schünemann et al.). The authors describe the development and pilot testing of the new WHO Rapid Advice Guidelines Group. In response to requests for advice from clinicians and public health professionals on how to treat H5N1 avian influenza, WHO convened a new type of panel to issue rapid, evidence-based advice. The paper is discussed further in the accompanying Editorial, which also outlines the strengths and weaknesses of the WHO's new revision of the International Health Regulations.
