SEA/RC57/10 - Regional implications of the decisions and resolutions of the fifty-seventh World Health Assembly and the 113th and 114th sessions of the executive board
AbstractThis working paper highlights the most significant and relevant decisions and resolutions emanating from the Fifty-seventh World Health Assembly, held in Geneva from 17-22 May 2004, as well as the 113th and 114th sessions of the Executive Board, held from 19-24 January 2004 and 24-27 May 2004 respectively. The working paper includes only those resolutions and decisions of the WHO governing bodies which are clearly relevant to the South-East Asia Region and have implications for either the South-East Asia Regional Office or for the countries of the Region. Besides presenting brief highlights of the resolution or decision, the regional implications of each resolution/decision have been enumerated, and an outline of the actions that need to be taken, whether by individual countries or by the Regional Office, has been presented. At the same time, the full texts of all resolutions and decisions have also been annexed hereto for information and reference of the representatives. The resolutions and decisions were reviewed at length by the CCPDM, at its 41st meeting, held in SEARO in July 2004. Major discussion points which emerged from the meeting, as well as observations and recommendations made by the Committee have been enumerated under Section 9 of the report of the CCPDM (document SEA/PDM/Meet.41/11). The subject is now submitted to the Regional Committee for its review and guidance.
