For the first time, the WHO EMRO Regional Committee Meeting is now open to members of the community.
The Regional Committee is WHO’s decision-making body in the Region, convening once a year to discuss and endorse regional policies, activities, and financial plans. Health ministers and high-level representatives of the 22 countries and territories of WHO’s Eastern Mediterranean Region, partner and civil society organizations will convene virtually this year for the 68th Regional Committee. Every year, new resolutions are adopted – at the end of the meeting – which guide the work of the WHO Regional Office and country offices for the coming year.
For the first time, the Regional Committee is taking place on a virtual platform - not only available to member states and delegates, but also to partners, academics, health professionals, and community members.
You can walk into the WHO EMRO premises for a virtual visit, attend panel discussions, visit the marketplace, and network with other participants. The platform is available in English, Arabic, and French.
