|Abstract:||The Policy and Coordination Committee (PCC) acts as the governing body of the Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction. At present, there are three Member States from the WHO South-East Asia Region (Indonesia, Myanmar and Timor-Leste) that are Members of PCC in Category 2, while India continues to be a Member of PCC in Category 1. Since the term of office of Timor-Leste ends on 31 December 2016, representatives of the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting were requested to consider electing one of the Member States of the SEA Region to serve on the PCC for a three-year term of office from 1 January 2017. The attached working paper was presented to the HLP Meeting which recommended that, since the term of office of Timor-Leste ends on 31 December 2016, Sri Lanka serve on the PCC for a three-year term of office from 1 January 2017. The recommendations made by the HLP Meeting for consideration by the Sixty-ninth Session of the Regional Committee are: Action by WHO: (1) Document the nomination of Sri Lanka based on the recommendations made at the HLP Meeting for inclusion in the working paper for the Sixty-ninth Session of the Regional Committee and update the HRP Department at WHO headquarters after the Regional Committee Session. (2) Share the finalized report of the PCC held during 23–24 June 2016 in Geneva as and when available. This Working Paper and the HLP Meeting recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-ninth Session of the WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia for its consideration and decision.|
