Abstract: This joint meeting between the nongovernmental organization COHRED (Council on Health Research for Development) and the Regional Office was convened to analyse the changes and challenges in health policy and research over the last decade, using country case studies, SWOT analysis and open discussion. The message from the meeting was that the role of health research in health policy development should be re-evaluated. The main elements of the new approach would be to create cooperative partnerships with policy-makers, to improve the quality of stakeholder involvement in priority-setting, to increase the adequacy and effectiveness of health research by using an interdisciplinary approach, and to enhance the management of health research. The participants recommended an increase in regional collaboration, the development of targeted country programmes, and systematic research capacity-building involving the existing human resource capacities of the CCEE and NIS. International organizations should support human resource development, promote regional dialogue, and contribute to the formulation of health research policy. The participants stressed the importance of supporting the central Asian republics
