Allergy in the World Health Organization's International Classification of Diseases (ICD)‐11

Allergy in the World Health Organization's International Classification of Diseases (ICD)‐11 The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) provides a common language for use worldwide as a diagnostic and classification tool for epidemiology, clinical purposes, and health management. The change in the hierarchy in ICD‐11 permitted the construction of the pioneer section addressed to allergic and hypersensitivity conditions (A/H), which may result in more accurate mortality and morbidity statistics, including more accurate accounting for mortality due to anaphylaxis, strengthen classification, terminology, and definitions. The ICD‐11 was presented and adopted by the 72nd World Health Assembly in May 2019, and the implementation is ongoing worldwide. The Montpellier World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre on Classification Scientific Support was designated in 2018 and is responsible for supporting the WHO through representing A/H in the international classifications and quality care of patients from the public health perspective. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Pediatric Allergy and Immunology Wiley

Abstract

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) provides a common language for use worldwide as a diagnostic and classification tool for epidemiology, clinical purposes, and health management. The change in the hierarchy in ICD‐11 permitted the construction of the pioneer section addressed to allergic and hypersensitivity conditions (A/H), which may result in more accurate mortality and morbidity statistics, including more accurate accounting for mortality due to anaphylaxis, strengthen classification, terminology, and definitions. The ICD‐11 was presented and adopted by the 72nd World Health Assembly in May 2019, and the implementation is ongoing worldwide. The Montpellier World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre on Classification Scientific Support was designated in 2018 and is responsible for supporting the WHO through representing A/H in the international classifications and quality care of patients from the public health perspective.
