SEA/RC69/20: Review of the Draft Provisional Agenda of the 140th Session of the WHO Executive Board
AbstractThe 140th Session of the WHO Executive Board will be held at WHO headquarters in Geneva from 23 January to 1 February 2017. Any proposal from a Member State or Associate Member of WHO to include an item on the Agenda should reach the Director-General of the World Health Organization not later than 12 weeks after the circulation of the Draft Provisional Agenda or 10 weeks before the commencement of the Session of the Executive Board, whichever is earlier. Proposals should, therefore, reach the Director-General by 12 September 2016. The High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting noted the Draft Provisional Agenda of the 140th Session of the WHO Executive Board and discussed the modalities of proposing an additional Agenda item on “Promoting physical activity” to the Executive Board Bureau within the given timeline of 12 September 2016. The HLP Meeting also noted that the Agenda Item 8.4 lists for evaluation and review of what were previously three separate Agenda items. The HLP Meeting discussed that the Regional Committee may consider sending a message to the Executive Board Bureau for listing these items separately and not for collective evaluation and review. The Draft Provisional Agenda for the 140th Session of the WHO Executive Board is now placed before the Sixty-ninth Session of the Regional Committee for its review, comment and noting, as appropriate.
