Via Dr Magda Havas – the ICD (International Classification of Diseases) now has codes for health effects caused by non-ionizing radiation. This was a request from the 2015 EHS Resolution adopted in Belgium. A major victory for the scientists and activists who attended this conference and for the doctors, lawyers, and EHS/Cancer survivors.

ICD-10 stands for the International Classification of Diseases and health-related problems (10th revision). It is produced by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and since January 1, 2005, all healthcare practitioners in South Africa are required, by law, to use this system. The coding is applicable to both the private and public sector.
