Reports of Recent Meetings Medical-Legal Workshops

Recommendations on a number of issues with both medical and legal implications were made by the Fifth Commonwealth Medical Conference in 1977. Among these were the training and use of paramedicals for community health care, commercial advertising inimical to health, the medical termination of pregnancy, and regulation of the use of medicinal drugs and control of their quality. Many member governments having subsequently expressed interest in participating in interdisciplinary discussions on these issues, two medical-legal workshops were held in 1979, in Barbados and in Malawi.
