View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractThe Joint Coordinating Board (JCB) of the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases Research (TDR) acts as the governing body of the Special Programme and is responsible for its overall policy and strategy. This paper describes the background and composition of the JCB TDR. At present, there are two Member states from the South-East Asia Region (India and Thailand) that are members of the JCB under paragraph 2.2.1 selected by the contributors to the Special Programme resources. The Government of Indonesia is a member until 31 December 2013 and the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal is a member until 31 December 2014 under paragraph 2.2.2 (selected by the WHO Regional Committee). The paper was presented to the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting held in SEARO, New Delhi from 2-5 July 2012, which noted the report on attendance of JCB members (SEA/RC65/17 Inf. Doc. refers), and made the following recommendation: Action by WHO-SEARO (1) To circulate a note on TDR research activities to the CEWG meeting to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, in August 2012. The WHO-SEARO secretariat is taking all required steps to implement the HLP’s recommendation. All country members have valid membership up to 2013, therefore, no action needs to be taken by the Regional Committee.
