World Health Assembly
Geneva (Switzerland), 14-25 May 2007
On 14-25 May, the Sixtieth World Health Assembly (WHA) convened in Geneva. During the WHA, Member States discussed and adopted a Resolution on Emergency Care Systems. The Resolution, initially proposed by Romania and Thailand, draws the attention of governments to the need to strengthen pre-hospital and emergency trauma care systems (including mass casualty management efforts) and describes a number of steps governments and WHO should take.

Twenty seven governments representing countries from all regions and income levels spoke in support of the Resolution thereby underlining the importance of the issue. In their remarks, governments were unanimous in stressing their support. Many countries highlighted the growing burden of injuries and violence and the challenge to develop adequate responses in low resource settings. In addition, the WHA reviewed a progress report on the World report on violence and health: implementation of recommendations.
