Conditions Treated by Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
A World Health Organization Interregional Seminar on Acupuncture, Moxibustion and Acupuncture Anesthesia was held in Beijing (Peking) in June 1979, attended by participants from twelve countries.

The World Health Organization Interregional Seminar drew up the following provisional list of diseases that lend themselves to acupuncture treatment. The list is based on clinical experience, and not necessarily on controlled clinical research; furthermore, the inclusion of specific diseases are not meant to indicate the extent of acupuncture's efficacy in treating them.

The following is a list of conditions which the World Health Organization determined may respond to acupuncture.
