Condolences


We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear that our long-time friend Dr. Arne Morten Kausland, Vice President of WFAS from Norway, passed away on 1st April, 2021. Please accept our sincere condolences and sympathy.


Dr. Kausland had been working with WFAS for more than 20 years and had made important contributions to our work in many aspects by being Member of the 5th Executive Committee, Vice President of the 6th, 7th, 8th  and 9th  Executive Committees, Deputy Director of Standardization Working  Committee,  Deputy  Director  of  Legalization  Working  Committee,  and  Member  of International Proficiency (Qualification) Exam Committee – he had been closely involved with all key issues in the progress of WFAS.


An expert to ISO/TC249 representing Norway, he devoted himself in promoting standardized, high- quality practice of acupuncture; a doctor for more than 30 years, he was an unswerving believer in acupuncture and seized every advocacy opportunity; a man of compassion and refined manner, he spared no effort in sharing his enormous knowledge or lending a helping hand whenever needed. Thanks to him, WFAS established cooperative connections with universities and institutions of Norway. We still remember the kind words bearing his greatest empathy to the people severely affected by COVID-19 pandemic.


To our sadness, it is time to say goodbye. We will continue our efforts to fulfill his will, letting acupuncture benefit all people’s health and welfare.


Dr. Kausland will be forever loved and remembered. May he rest in peace. 


Yours sincerely,

President Liu Baoyan and the Secretariat
