The Regional Committee,
Having considered resolution WHA2O.48 adopted by the Twentieth World Health Assembly on co-ordination at the national level in relation to the technical co-operation field programme of the Organization, *
- ENDORSES the opinion of the Health Assembly that it is primarily the responsibility of governments to co-ordinate their own health programmes and also the aid they receive from external assistance:
- EMPHASIZES the usefulness of national co-ordination committees:
- RECOMMENDS that whenever it is considered appropriate, governments call upon the services of the WHO representatives to facilitate their task of co-ordinating health activities receiving technical assistance.
