World Federation of Chiropractic Meets in Geneva


The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), representing national associations of chiropractors in 43 countries, had its annual executive council meeting in Geneva, Switzerland during May 1990.

The meeting was held to coincide with the annual Assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO). For the first time, DCs from every world region attended the WHO assembly, carrying awareness of chiropractic to WHO leaders and national delegates from over 100 countries. Meetings with WHO officials advanced working relations first established in 1988.

New countries/associations admitted to membership were Belize, Columbia, Iran, Kuwait, and Taiwan. A major WFC agenda item in Geneva was the planning of the 1991 World Chiropractic Congress to be held at the Royal York Hotel, Toronto, Canada, April 30-May 5, 1991. This will feature: assembly of members with reports on chiropractic in over 40 countries, workshops, lectures, and presentation of current chiropractic research.
