World Health Professions Alliance

The global organizations representing the world’s nurses, pharmacists and physicians joined forces in 1999, creating a unique alliance to address global health issues – the World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA). It speaks for more than 23 million health care professionals worldwide, and it assembles knowledge from the key professions for advancement of the fields and better treatment of the people. The members are the International Council of Nurses, the International Pharmaceutical Federation, the World Confederation for Physical Therapy, the FDI World Dental Federation, and the World Medical Association. With a forward looking vision, the Alliance partners have committed to taking an unprecedented proactive role to deliver improved health care to global populations.

June 2013 - IAPO responds to a WMA consultation on the Declaration of Helsinki

In June 2013, IAPO responded to a World Medical Association consultation on the seventh revision to the Declaration of Helsinki.

The Declaration of Helsinki is a set of ethical principles regarding the use of human subjects in medical research. It was developed for the medical community by the World Medical Association and was originally adopted in June 1964 in Helsinki, Finland. It provides a solid foundation for defining and outlining ethical principles in medical research. The Declaration of Helsinki is a ‘live’ document and has undergone six revisions since the original version was published and is currently undergoing a seventh revision, which was put out to consultation. IAPO has reviewed the revised Declaration and responded to the consultation.

In its response, IAPO stated that:

  • It is essential that patients participating in medical research are adequately protected from risk
  • Vulnerable or underrepresented populations need stronger measures to protect them from harm
  • Patients participating in medical trials should have access to the best possible treatment, both during the trial and post-trial

Read IAPO’s comments on the Declaration of Helsinki in full.

The revised version of the Declaration is due to be approved in October. IAPO will be monitoring the progress of the Declaration and working with the WMA on the dissemination of the revised version of the Declaration.
