WHO 64th Session of Europe Regional Committee in Copenhagen for WFAS
WHO 64th Session of Europe Regional Committee in Copenhagen for WFAS, September 15th -18th 2014
The annual session received representatives of the 53 European WHO countries (many health ministers), NGOs in official relationship to WHO and observers to decide about major health projects, like Health 2020, and to discuss others. 420 participants alltogether.
As WFAS being a NGO with official relationship to WHO Gerd Ohmstede was asked as board member of WFAS to participate at 64th session. As delegate Helle Wengel from the board oft he Danish PA (Acupuncture Society) joined to form the new force of TCM in this pure Western medical meeting. The beginning of a new era.
It was interesting how many of the general themes were also in relation to TCM, means Chinese Medicine would help and support patients. We need to express this clearly.
The most impressing experience was to discuss with the other NGOs about influences the decision processes of WHO Europe. Unfortunately there is no T&CM section as in WHO headquarters in Geneva. We are looking forward fort he 65. session in Latvia.
