Jón Kristjánsson, the Minister of Health in Iceland, sends a letter to Gro Harlem Brundtland regarding the database on experimental treatments for spinal cord injury.

jon kristjansson

I would like to start by thanking the World Health Organisation, and especially you, for your support and co-operation in arranging the international conference on Human Spinal Cord Injury, held in Reykjavík May 31st - June 2nd 2001.
At the conference many pioneers in the field of spinal cord injury expressed the view that it is becoming very urgent to provide more resources in the search for a more effective treatment and even cure of spinal cord injuries. These injuries are not only frequent among young people but are also a substantial financial burden for the health and social services in most countries.
