The Regional Committee,
Recalling that the Region for Asia and the Pacific of the United Nations Development Programme is made up of countries in three WHO Regions: the South-East Asian, the Eastern Mediterranean and the Western Pacific;
Noting that the proposal to the United Nations Development Programme for support from the regional programme for Asia and the Pacific during the period 1982-86 is to be presented as one consolidated proposal, in some cases involving amalgamation of three WHO regional programme proposals;
Having reviewed the proposals for the Western Pacific Region * and noted those which may in due course be amalgamated with the proposals of the other two Regions;
- ENDORSES the proposals for the Western Pacific Region for submission to the United Nations Development Programme;
- ACCORDS the order of priority shown in the list attached as Annex 1 to the proposals for the Western Pacific Region;
- AUTHORIZES the Regional Director, should amalgamation of three WHO regional programme proposals distort that order of priority, to use his judgement in consolidating the final proposal to the United Nations Development Programme, on the understanding that the wishes of the Regional Committee with regard to order of priority in particular, are kept constantly in mind.
