Regional committee

The Regional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean is WHO’s decision-making body in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. It meets in early October every year with representation from all 21 Member States of the Region and the occupied Palestinian territory. The main functions of the Regional Committee are to:

formulate policies governing matters of an exclusively regional character

supervise the activities of the Regional Office, including approving the budget

suggest the calling of technical conferences and such additional work or investigation in health matters as appropriate

tender advice, through the Director-General, to the Organization on international health matters which have wider than regional significance.
