Regional Committee for Europe

The 62nd session of the Regional Committee for Europe will take place in Malta from 10-13 September 2012.  

See the documentation page for the 62nd Session for key issues, provisional agenda and media details. 

Some of the issues emerging from the recent WHA65 and from the WHO Reform program include: 

  • greater harmonisation across regions (see paras 28-33 of A65/5)
  • closer alignment between Headquarters, regions and country offices (see paragraphs 22- 27 of A65/5)
  • consideration of draft Global Program of Work (GPW12) and PB(2014-15) 
  • new reporting obligations for regional offices to Executive Board (under 'alignment' above)
  • rules for allowing observers at RC meetings (links with both harmonisation and alignment)


The 61st session was held in Baku, Azerhaijan in September 2011.  See documentation page for this meeting.
