AbstractThis publication commemorates 60 years of the work of the World Health Organization in th South-East Asia Region. While depicting the highlights of WHO's collaborative activities in health development, the publication also carries the personal reflections of eminent health leaders from the Region on several areas of vital concern. Carrying a disproportionately heavy burden of communicable and noncommunicable diseases, the Region has, nevertheless, made significant progress in tackling these formidable challenges. The publication provides useful insights into the past, the present, as well as the future role of WHO as it strives, with its Member countries, to improve the quality of life of the people in the South-East Asia Region.
