The article reports that the relationship between the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) and the World Health Organization (WHO) has been maintained. At a previous meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, the WHO Executive Board has reviewed the ILSI's non-governmental organization status as a component of the organization's standard three-year review cycle. The National Resources Defense Council, an environmental action group, has called for the WHO to end its ties with ILSI, arguing that the ILSI's membership includes representatives of multinational corporations having interest in public health matters, to which the WHO has differed.
