I received this message from Bob Hata via the TDR-newsgroup recently and think 
that it might be of interest to some of you.
Sincerely

Folks,

The 50th session of the World Health Assembly is just over. I learned
of the Web appearance of a great number of WHO policy documents,
including WHO Constitution, Executive Board and Assembly documents...
 
An example of the emerging products of the WHO Management Information
System (WHO/MIS)!  The URL is:

      The WHO Policy information retrieval system has been established
      as one of the core modules of the WHO Management Information
      System (WHO/MIS). It provides access to WHO policies and related
      documents . It is a full text retrieval system allowing the user
      to navigate and search through the various "infobases".
 
      To view and query an infobase, or conduct a query on several
