Report of the 5th meeting



The European Advisory Committee on Health Research (EACHR) reports directly to the WHO Regional Director for Europe. Its purpose is to advise on formulation of policies for the development of health research, review the scientific basis of selected regional programmes, advise on new findings on priority public health issues and evidence based strategies to address them
and facilitate exchange of information on research agendas and evidence gaps. The Committee held its fifth formal meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 7–8 July 2014. It reviewed and offered advice on WHO programmes, made recommendations and action points, agreed EACHR rules and procedures, updated the EACHR action plan for 2013–2014 and identified further longer-term activities.
