World Health Organization Review of Acupuncture’s Efficacy.

In 1999, the World Health Organization (WHO) convened an expert panel of acupuncture researchers to comprehensively review controlled clinical trials, and to list conditions for which there is scientific evidence of acupuncture’s efficacy.  The report  entitled  Acupuncture:  Review and Analysis of Controlled Clinical Trials was published in 2003.

Conditions listed by the WHO expert panel include, among others:
