The ICD-10 Classification of Mental and Behaviours Disorder

In the early 1960s, the Mental Health Programme of the World Health Organization
(WHO) became actively engaged in a programme aiming to improve the diagnosis and
classification of mental disorders. At that time, WHO convened a series of meetings to
review knowledge, actively involving representatives of different disciplines, various
schools of thought in psychiatry, and all parts of the world in the programme. It
stimulated and conducted research on criteria for classification and for reliability of
diagnosis, and produced and promulgated procedures for joint rating of videotaped
interviews and other useful research methods. Numerous proposals to improve the
classification of mental disorders resulted from the extensive consultation process, and
these were used in drafting the Eighth Revision of the International Classification of
Diseases (ICD-8). A glossary defining each category of mental disorder in ICD-8 was
also developed. The programme activities also resulted in the establishment of a network
of individuals and centres who continued to work on issues related to the improvement
of psychiatric classification (1, 2).
The 1970s saw further growth of interest in improving psychiatric classification
worldwide. Expansion of international contacts, the undertaking of several international
collaborative studies, and the availability of new treatments all contributed to this trend.
Several national psychiatric bodies encouraged the development of specific criteria for
classification in order to improve diagnostic reliability. In particular, the American
Psychiatric Association developed and promulgated its Third Revision of the Diagnostic
and Statistical Manual, which incorporated operational criteria into its classification

In 1978, WHO entered into a long-term collaborative project with the Alcohol, Drug
Abuse and Mental Health Administration (ADAMHA) in the USA, aiming to facilitate
further improvements in the classification and diagnosis of mental disorders, and
alcohol- and drug-related problems (3). A series of workshops brought together scientists
from a number of different psychiatric traditions and cultures, reviewed knowledge in
specified areas, and developed recommendations for future research. A major
international conference on classification and diagnosis was held in Copenhagen,
Denmark, in 1982 to review the recommendations that emerged from these workshops
and to outline a research agenda and guidelines for future work (4).
