Excerpt
INTRODUCTIOS A WHO Scientiik Group on Biolog~cal Research in Schizophrenia met in Geneva from 13 to 17 October 1969. The meeting was opened by Dr L. Verhoestraete, Director, Dil-ision of Health Protection and Promotion, on behalf of the Director-General. The first meeting of a WHO Scientific Group on Mental Health Research, in 1964, pointed out the lack of firm knowledge on the etiology and pathogenesis of mental disorders. Following the recommendations of the Group, WHO developed t1s.o research programmes, one on the diagnosis, classification, statistics and epidemiology of mental disorders, and the other on biological psychiatry.
