The Organization acknowledges its indebtedness to the many experts who provided comments and advice during the preparation of these Guidelines on Basic Training and Safety in Acupuncture, including those who submitted comments through the WHO Regional Offices and the World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion Societies (WFAS).

In particular, thanks are due to those who reviewed the drafts at the WHO Consultation on Acupuncture at Cervia, Italy, in 1996, to Professor Zhu-Fan Xie, Honorary Director of the Institute of Integrated Medicine, First Hospital of Beijing Medical University, China, who drafted the guidelines, and to Dr Gordon Stott who edited the final draft.

Appreciation is also extended to the Italian Ministry of Health and the Centre of Research in Bioclimatology, Biotechnologies and Natural Medicine of the State University of Milan (a WHO Collaborating Centre for Traditional Medicine), for their support and to the Japanese Hyogo Association of Acupuncture and Moxibustion and the Norwegian Acupuncture Association, for financial contribution for publication.
