Gaming industry pushes back against WHO definition of Gaming Disorder as a disease

The gaming industry has begun, on a global scale, to push back against the World Health Organization (WHO) decision to make gaming addiction disorder an officially recognised disease last year. The WHO has drafted definitions for “gaming disorder” and “hazardous gaming” that are due to be rolled out officially in literature later this year; they are also proposed for entry into the frequently updated and revised International Compendium of Diseases.
