Evaluation of the Country Visits: Report of the Sub-Committee of the Regional Committee on Programmes and Techical Cooperation, Part II

         The Regional Committee,

         Having considered the report of the Sub-Committee of the Regional Committee on Programmes and technical Cooperation, Part II, on the evaluation of country visits;**

         Noting that all the Member States who replied to the questionnaire felt that the country visits should be continued and that all the WHO programme managers who replied indicated that they use the results of the country visits to re-orient their programmes;

         Concerned that evaluation of the country visits should be continued;

  1. ENDORSES the Sub-Committee's proposals that, first, instead of meeting every year as at present, the Sub-Committee should meet only when it is required to perform a specific task and, second, that country visits should be continued, but only when the Sub-Committee is specifically requested to do so;
  2. REQUESTS the Regional Director:
    (1) to inform the Regional Committee at its annual session of items that the Sub-Committee could be asked to review before the next session of the Regional Committee, in order that the Regional Committee can decide whether or not to convene the Sub-Committee;
    (2) to continuously evaluate the country visits, bearing in mind the recommendations contained in the Sub-Committee's report;
  3. DECIDES that the next meeting of the Sub-Committee will be convened during the fiftieth session of the Regional Committee with specific terms of reference as decided by Resolution WPR/RC49/R7 and that there will be no country visit in conjunction with this meeting.
