SEA/RC60/4 - Merging of meeting of consultative committee for programme development and management (CCPDM) and meeting of health secretaries (HSM) of the South-East Asia region
AbstractThe eleventh meeting of Health Secretaries (HSM) held in June 2006 suggested that the HSM and meeting of the Consultative Committee for Programme Development and Management (CCPDM) be merged. This proposal was discussed at the High-level Consultation (HLC) with SEAR Member States on WHO Programme Development and Management, held in May 2007 in the Regional Office, New Delhi. The HLC endorsed the proposal to combine the meetings of HSM and the CCPDM. It was proposed that the new entity may be referred as the “Regional Policy and Programme Committee (RPPC)”. The HLC recommended that the proposal to establish the RPPC with revised Terms of Reference, as endorsed by it, should be submitted to the Twenty-fifth Health Ministers’ Meeting and the Sixtieth session of the Regional Committee in August/September 2007. The paper is now submitted to the Sixtieth session of the Regional Committee for its endorsement.
