1. Report of Drs. Gay Prieto and Sven Hellerström concerning the steps which have been taken to have our League named a "nongovernmental" member of the World Health Organization. M. Bertrand, of the World Health Organization, let us know that our request will be considered in January, 1959.*


I have the honour to refer to our previous correspondence concerning the application of the International League of Dermatological Societies for admission into official relations with the World Health Organization.

I am pleased to inform you that, after considering the report of its Standing Committee on Non-governmental organizations, the Executive Board of the World Health Organization, at its twenty-third session, decided to admit your Organization into official relations.

I feel sure that this relationship will lead to close collaboration and fruitful work between our two organizations.

I have the honour to be,


Your obedient Servant,

M. G.
