|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, three Member States from the WHO South-East Asia Region (Indonesia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka) are Members of the PCC in Category 2, while India and Thailand continue to be Members of the PCC in Category 1. Since the term of office of Indonesia ends on 31 December 2017, representatives of the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting were requested to consider proposing one of the Member States of the South-East Asia Region to serve on the PCC for a three-year term of office from 1 January 2018. The attached working paper was presented to the HLP Meeting which recommended that, since the term of Indonesia ends on 31 December 2017, Bhutan serve on the PCC for a three-year term of office from 1 January 2018. The recommendations made by the HLP meeting for consideration by the Seventieth Session of the Regional Committee are: Action by WHO: (1) Document the nomination of Bhutan based on the recommendations made at the HLP Meeting for inclusion in the working paper for the Seventieth 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 Meeting held during 22–23 June 2017 in Geneva as and when available. This Working Paper and the HLP Meeting recommendations are submitted to the Seventieth Session of the WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia for its consideration and decision.|
