Title: Governing body matters: Review of Regional Committee resolutions - SEA/RC68/21
Authors: World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia

Description: The attached working paper attempts to seek guidance from the Regional Committee to explore ways to phase out some of the resolutions adopted by it for the last 10 years. Many of the resolutions are “open-ended” and do not define any time-frame to report back to the Regional Committee. A set of resolutions that have clearly defined reporting requirements would help in phasing out resolutions that have outlived their relevance and result in efficiently utilizing the time of the Regional Committee in future sessions. The High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting held in the WHO Regional Office in New Delhi from 29 June to 2 July 2015 reviewed the attached working paper and made the following recommendations: Actions by Member States (1) Actively participate and contribute to the discussions at the proposed technical consultation to be convened by the Regional Office. (2) Thoroughly discuss at a future HLP meeting, the conclusions and recommendations emanating from such a technical consultation, and make proposals to the Regional Committee for decision. Actions by WHO (1) Study actions taken by the other two regions (EMR and EUR) in phasing out the Regional Committee resolutions and prepare a background document for the proposed technical consultation to review and phase out the past RC resolutions. (2) Convene technical consultations with participation of all concerned, to review the past Regional Committee resolutions, develop criteria and proposal for phasing out previous RC resolutions and evaluate the criteria before the next HLP. (3) Consider developing an archive of all the previous RC resolutions by subject, and prepare an electronic database for monitoring their implementation for use by the Regional Office and the Member States while considering new draft resolutions. The working paper and HLP recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-eighth Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
