« on: September 24, 2012, 08:08:38 AM »

The World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Committee for the Western Pacific will hold its 63th session in Vietnam's capital Hanoi from Sept. 24-28 to review WHO's works of the past year and discuss future directions.

The announcement was made by Vietnamese Minister of Health (MOH) Dr. Nguyen Thi Kim Tien at a news conference here on Sunday, which is jointly held by MOH and WHO regional office for the Western Pacific region.

This is the first time Vietnam hosts such kind of regional meeting on health issues, which will mark a milestone in cooperation between Vietnam and WHO and international health organizations, said the Vietnamese health official.

WHO Regional Director for the Western Pacific, Dr. Shin Young-soo told media reporters that among the 20 agenda items up for discussions at the Regional Committee meeting will be the high prevalence of non-communicable diseases, violence and injury prevention, the neglected tropical diseases, tobacco control, malaria and artemisinin resistance, HIV prevention and treatment, the health-related Millennium Development Goals, the International Health Regulations, health financing, measles elimination and health settings approaches.

There will be side events, notably one about universal health coverage held by MOH, which will present Vietnam's experience of national health insurance development, said Dr. Shin.

Three hundred and fifty delegates, including 22 ministers of health, from regional countries will attend the meeting, besides representatives from local and international and non-governmental health organizations.

The Western Pacific Region comprises 37 countries and areas, and a population of 1.8 billion people.
