Regional Contribution to the Eighth General Programme of Work

         The Regional Committee,

         Having considered Part III of the report of the Sub-Committee on Programmes and Technical Cooperation on the regional contribution to the Eighth General Programme of Work covering the period 1990-1995;*

         Noting that the Eighth General Programme of Work, following the same general principles as the Seventh General Programme of Work, emphasizes activities at country level and that preparation of the regional contribution has therefore involved consultations at country and regional levels to ensure that the priority needs of countries are reflected;

         Noting also that, while the Eighth General Programme of Work generally follows the structure of the Seventh General Programme of Work, a few modifications have been made in the light of the policy decisions and recommendations of the World Health Assembly and the Executive Board;

  1. ENDORSES the regional contribution to the Eighth General Programme of Work as well as the views expressed by members of the Sub-Committee on Programmes and Technical Cooperation;
  2. DECIDES to accord an order of priority to each of the programmes under the Eighth General Programme of Work for the Western Pacific Region;
  3. REQUESTS the Sub-Committee on Programmes and Technical Cooperation to undertake the work relating thereto at its 1987 meeting;
  4. REQUESTS the Regional Director:
    (1) to transmit the regional contribution to the Director-General for consideration in preparing the draft material of the Eighth General Programme of Work to be submitted to the Executive Board;
    (2) to take into consideration the comments made by the Regional Committee when implementing the Eighth General Programme of Work in the Western Pacific Region.
