SEARO Regional Committee 65th Meeting (4-7 Sept, 2012)

The Sixty-fifth Session of the RC for SEARO will be held in Indonesia from 4-7 September 2012. The Regional Committee session is usually held in conjunction with the meeting of the Health Ministers of the Region. At the time of posting (10 Aug) there are no papers posted on the SEARO website for the 65th Session.   

In addition to the flow on issues and new issues arising in SEARO there are a number of issues emerging from the recent WHA65 and associated discussions around WHO Reform including: 

  • greater harmonisation across regions (see paras 28-33 of A65/5)
  • closer alignment between Headquarters, regions and country offices (see paragraphs 22- 27 of A65/5)
  • consideration of draft Global Program of Work (GPW12) and PB(2014-15) 
  • new reporting obligations for regional offices to Executive Board (under 'alignment' above)
  • rules for allowing observers at RC meetings (links with both harmonisation and alignment)
