|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. The Special Programme has been set up under the administrative aegis of the World Health Organization (WHO) and is co-sponsored by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Bank. For the purpose of coordinating the interests and responsibilities of the parties cooperating in this Special Programme, a Joint Coordinating Board (JCB) has been established. The paper describes the background and composition of the TDR and the action to be taken by the Regional Committee. It also includes a brief report on the thirty-first session of the JCB held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 16 to 18 June 2008. The report on the deliberations of the thirty-first session of the JCB was presented to the Meeting of the Advisory Committee (ACM), held in SEARO, New Delhi from 30 June-3 July 2008, by Dr Gado Tshering, representative from Bhutan. The ACM noted the report. From the South-East Asia (SEA) Region, India is a member under paragraph 2.2.1 of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), i.e. Member countries selected by the contributors to the Special Programme. Bhutan (2008-2011) and Thailand (2007-2009) are members under paragraph 2.2.2 of the MoU, i.e. Member countries selected by the Regional Committee. The Sixty-first Session of the Regional Committee will not be required to select a member government as there will be no vacancies in 2009 under paragraph 2.2.2 of the MoU.|
