Consultative expert working group on research and development: financing and coordination : Report of regional technical consultation, Bangkok, thailand, 15-17 August 2012
AbstractThis document outlines the deliberations of a regional technical consultation organized from 15 to 17 August 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand, as a follow-up to World Health Assembly resolution (WHA65.22), "Follow-up of the report of the Consultative Expert Working Group (CEWG) on Research and Development: Financing and Coordination". The CEWG submitted its report in May 2012, which dealt with the need to increase in investments in health research and development related to Type II and Type III diseases and the specific research and development needs of developing countries in relation to Type I diseases. The regional consultation was organized at the request of Member States of the South-East Asia Region who have been actively involved in the development of the Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property. The objective was to enable Member States of the Region to present their national standpoints and develop a regional position. This regional consultation enabled the Member States of the Region to take an informed decision on the CEWG report at the Regional Committee in Yogyakarta in September 2012. As a result, the Regional Committee adopted resolution SEA/RC65/R3 on the CEWG. This regional technical consultation is a precursor to the discussions being organized by the WHO Director-General in an open-ended meeting of all Member States on 26-28 November 2012 to develop proposals or options relating to (1) research coordination, (2) financing and (3) monitoring of R&D expenditures which would be presented at the Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly in 2013.
