PAHO Executive Committee planning strategies to improve health in the Americas

The Executive Committee of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has begun its 162nd session at the World Health Organization's (WHO) regional office for the Americas.

This is aimed at discussing strategies and plans of action to improve the health of the Americas, including the Caribbean.

Chaired by Panama, PAHO says the committee will meet until June 30 to discuss strategies and plans, developed in consultation with its Member States, which guide regional cooperation.

PAHO says issues to be discussed during the Committee include: action plans to ensure the health of women, children and adolescents; the prevention and treatment of cervical cancer; and the human resources required for universal health access and coverage.
