    In December 1978 the Global Commission for the Certification of Smallpox Eradication considered all aspects of the programme. One of the objectives of the Global Commission was "to recommend research activities regarding: possible animal reservoirs of variola virus; the importance to man of monkeypox and whitepox viruses; the possible emergence of new variola-like viruses." Accordingly, the Global Commission made several recommendations in relation to orthopoxviruses. One of these-recommendations was that a "Study Group on Orthopoxviruses" be appointed by the World Health Organization and this group meet periodically. A meeting of a study group on orthopoxvirus research was convened by WHO at the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Atlanta, from 26 to 28 June 1979.
