At each meeting of the Pan American Health Organization Advisory Committee on Medical Research, a special one-day session is held on a topic chosen by the Committee as being of particular interest. Experts in the field under discussion are invited to participate. At the Fifth Meeting, which convened in June 1966 in Washington, D.C., the session explored the natural and acquired acclimatization of man to high altitudes, examining its morphological, physiological, clinical, and demographic patterns and delineating areas in which increased research efforts are desirable. This volume records the papers presented and the accompanying discussions.
