Response from Gro Harlem Brundtland to Benedikt Jónsson, Iceland’s Ambassador in Geneva, as regards Audur’s request.


Dear Ambassador,

I refer to our ongoing correspondence on the subject of spinal cord injuries and most recently your letter of 8 October 1999.

I wish first of all to apologize for any miscommunication that may have occurred. The Organization is certainly most interested in working with you on the establishment of a centre in Iceland on the issue of spinal cord injuries. The proposed first step, to collect worldwide pertinent information on spinal cord injuries - with regard to incidence, outcome and health care implications - is also fully in line with our plans. Similarly, we shall be pleased to collaborate with the centre to organize an international meeting, subsequent to their collection of global data.
