Abstract

This issue of Pain: Clinical Updates focuses upon the promotion of pain relief as a fundamental human right, in addition, of course, to being good clinical and ethical practice. A companion issue describes the long-term collaboration of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) with the World Health Organization (WHO) as it enters a new, dynamic phase.
