It was prepared by a panel of expertsnominated by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute(NHLBI), National Institutes of Health and the WorldHealth Organization with the aim of providing the bestvalidated current concepts of COPD pathogenesis and thebest available evidence on the most appropriate managementand prevention strategies. In an effort to keep the GOLDWorkshop Report as up to date as possible, GOLD assembleda Scientific Committee whose aim was to review clinicalresearch that has an impact on COPD management. Theinitial review included publications that were published inJune 2000 (approximately the time of completion of the 2001report) through to March 2003. The results of the first 2 yrs ofactivity were posted on the GOLD website (www.goldcopd.com) in July 2003 . Each year, a new update report will beposted.
