These decisions and resolutions are particularly relevant to the South-East Asia Region and merit follow-up action, both by Member States as well as WHO at the Regional Office and at country levels. The background of the selected decisions/resolutions, highlights from the main operative paragraphs of these selected decisions/resolutions, as well as the regional implications of each decision and/or resolution, as applicable, and actions proposed for Member States and WHO, have been presented.

From among the selected decisions/resolutions, the Joint Meeting recommended that the Regional Office reviews and synthesizes the current situation of workers’ health in Member States and to present it as an agenda item at the sixty-first session of the Regional Committee in 2008. The document is submitted to the Sixtieth session of the Regional Committee for review and noting, as appropriate.
