|Abstract:||The 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 and the action to be taken by the Regional Committee. It also includes a brief report on the Thirty-second session of the JCB held in Geneva, from 15 to 17 June 2009. Since the term of office of Thailand ends on 31 December 2009, the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting was requested to recommend the election of one of the Member States of the Region to serve on the JCB for a four-year term of office from 1 January 2010. The attached working paper and report of the JCB were submitted to the HLP Meeting. The HLP Meeting proposed to the Sixty-second Session of the Regional Committee for consideration and decision that Indonesia be elected as the Member State from the South-East Asia Region in the JCB, in place of Thailand whose term expires on 31 December 2009. The paper is now submitted to the Sixty-second Session of the Regional Committee for noting the report of the JCB meeting, and for its decision on the HLP meeting’s recommendation.|
