This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

There is a need to harmonise the techniques and assistance provided to support diagnostic and forensic testing following major disasters. That was the view of some 400 experts at a conference held earlier this month to appraise the healthcare response to the south-east Asian tsunami. DNA testing was among the services highlighted in their findings. The World Health Organization (WHO) is facing calls to take the lead in harmonising techniques and services. It was one of the issues that health ministers and experts from 192 countries discussed at the World Health Assembly.
