David Byrne, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer protection, receives Gro Harlem Brundtland, Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO). They had a series of high level consultations in order to try to set up joint strategies to combat health problems, and in particular smoking, transmissible diseases, research into health problems, the environment, food and health and food safety. The problems covered during these meetings show the high level of co-operation between the Commission and the WHO.
