WHA73 Resumed

Geneva

This page deals with the meeting of WHA73 in which the discussion suspended in May will be resumed. See the page for the abridged meeting of WHA73 in May here.

The first version of the provisional agenda for the scheduled WHA73 was published on 6 April (A73/1) and a limited number of the Secretariat documents referenced have been published.

However, a revised (and 'abridged) provisional agenda (A73/1 Add.1) was published on 29 April with only one document referenced, namely A73/3, the Address by the DG (and as of 9 May, that document has not been published). 

The footnotes to A73/1 Add.1 advised that the Assembly would meet on line, using video conferencing technology, and would consider only the abridged version of the Provisional agenda and that the Committees of the Health Assembly would not convene on this occasion.

It was proposed that Assembly would be suspended after considering the abridged agenda, and resume later in 2020.

The tracker page below sets out the agenda and links to the documents for the resumed meeting, based on the provisional agenda published as A73/1 on April 6.
