World Health Day

World Health Day 2009 Celebration at the Regional
Office for the Western Pacific


The World Health Day Programme featured messages from the Staff Association by Mr Dan Luzentales and from the OIC of WPRO, Dr Henk Bekedam. This was followed by videos presented for World Health Day: "Save lives! Make Hospitals Safe in Emergencies." The first video was a 30-second film from the Headquarters; the second was a 2-minute film produced by WPRO. The programme then ended with the traditional international potluck.
