Description: The Sixty-seventh Session of the Regional Committee held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, proposed that “Strengthening community-based health-care services” be the topic for Technical Discussions to be held prior to the Sixty-eighth Session, 7–11 September 2015 in Dili, Timor-Leste. 2015 marks the transition from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The targets for the SDG health goal include universal health coverage (UHC), to which Member States of the South-East Asia Region have already committed. UHC is about increasing all people’s access to care that they need, and about protecting them from being impoverished as a result of health-care. Community-based services are a vital and fast-changing component of UHC. With this background, the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia conducted Technical Discussions during 15–16 June 2015. The attached working paper summarizes the recommendations for Member States and WHO from the discussions, and reflects additional points made at the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) held at the Regional Office from 29 June¬–2 July 2015. HLP recommendations were as follows: Action by Member States (1) Propose a draft resolution on community-based health-care services for consideration by the Regional Committee. Action by WHO (1) Support Member States to implement the recommendations of the technical discussions. The working paper and HLP recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-eighth Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
