Excerpt
The global Advisory Committee on Health Research (ACHR) held its 40th Session at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland from June 17-18, 2002. In addition to the members of ACHR, the meeting included chairs of regional ACHR's, WHO staff from regions and headquarters, invited observers, and representatives of partner organizations. The main item on the ACHR’s agenda was the World Health Report 2004 (WHR2004) on the theme of Health Research-Knowledge for Better Health. This Report, and its possible contents and structure, was discussed extensively by members and other participants. The Secretariat presented its initiative on Health Research Systems Analysis (HRSA) which will serve to inform the WHR2004. The follow-up to the launch of the ACHR Report on Genomics & World Health, released on April 30, 2002, was also discussed in detail with a focus on the implementation of the Report’s recommendations and post-launch activities. The ACHR was also informed of progress on its previous recommendations (e.g. database of WHO-supported research activities, peer-review of project proposals) and was briefed on the sentinel topic of Climate Change & Human Health, one of the programme areas in the Sustainable Development & Healthy Environments (SDE) cluster. Highlights were also presented of research activities in all six WHO regions. In a departure from past practice, the regional ACHR chairs and RPC counterparts in the regional offices held a separate session during the meeting (chaired by Professor Jorge Allende) to discuss closer cooperation between regional ACHR’s. The Committee was also briefed on the plans for a World Health Research Summit in Mexico in 2004, an event planned to coincide with the launch of WHR 2004.
