The consultation discussed the next steps for the Regional Committee resolution (SEA/RC65/R3) and the World Health Assembly resolution (WHA66.22) on CEWG. The consultation brought together both senior health policy officials and experts in the area of public health. The meeting was also attended by a number of observers from the scientific community and nongovernmental organizations, as well as participants from the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific. At this meeting, the Member States of the SEA Region developed a grid for classification of norms and standards for health products research and development. This classification grid would be invaluable for the proposed R&D observatory under consideration in resolution WHA 66.22. The consultation also identified seven priority areas based on the public health needs of Member States of the Region, and for which demonstration projects could be initiated to deliver health products.
