Other TitlesReport of the technical consultation, 15-26 June 2015, WHO/SEARO, New Delhi
AbstractTraditionally, the WHO South-East Asia Regional Committee discusses a technical subject during its session every year. During this year's session, the technical subject to be discussed next year is decided and is selected based on the importance of the subject to all Member States. Considering the successful achievements from community-based health services in the areas of communicable diseases, maternal, newborn, child, adolescent and reproductive health and also considering the challenges of prevention of noncommunicable diseases, "Strengthening Community-Based Health Services" was selected as the technical topic to be discussed at the Sixty-eighth Session of the Regional Committee to be held in Dili, Timor-Leste. The Secretariat organized a technical discussion on this subject with country representatives and invited experts to discuss the topic and make recommendations. A meeting report of this discussion paved the way to develop the background paper required for the technical discussion at the Regional Committee. This background paper and recommendations were presented to the High-Level Preparatory Committee meeting and it was recommended that it be presented at the forthcoming Session of the Regional Committee.
