Brisbane Treats WHO’s Members

After hosting the 2014 G20 Summit, the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) recently welcomed the 68th session of the World Health Organisation’s Regional Committee for the Western Pacific Region. The conference was held in Australia for the first time in 20 years.

WHO members from the Western Pacific Region gathered in Brisbane to discuss future priorities for the health and well-being of the region’s nearly 1.9 billion people. More than 30 countries and areas in the region, including the world’s most populous country China and small Pacific island states were present, represented by ministers for health and senior officials, who were among the 300 delegates.
