This WPA Action Plan for the period 2014 – 2017 has been produced by the WPA Planning Committee, and reviewed and approved by the WPA Executive Committee and is submitted for the approval of the General Assembly.
You may recall that in my earlier communication in the beginning of December 2015, I had informed you that the WPA had set up a WPA-Lancet Commission on Psychiatry, the first ever to be set up by Lancet Psychiatry.
I would like to take this opportunity to keep you informed of various activities which have been happening since my last communication. We have not had an EC meeting so I have not been able to send the agreed action points to you.
