World Health Organisation 70th regional committee for South-East Asia AND the 68th Regional Committee Session for the Western Pacific

The regional committee is a meeting that happens regionally every year. It is the meeting that theoretically will bring the region’s perspective and discussions to the WHA (World Health Assembly). In this meeting members of the region will meet and receive reports, make plans, and discuss the health problems that are present in the region. The Regional Committee (RC) is a very important affair whose outcome will affect the health programs and funding targets within the region for the next year.

IFMSA has been extended invitations to attend both these regional meetings, so both are open for YOU to attend!
