WHO Mongolia Country staff conducted the end of year staff Retreat
Lymphatic filariasis, yaws, leprosy and the other neglected tropical diseases were discussed at length. Dr Shin repeated his personal commitment – first delivered soon after he assumed his post in 2009 – to the diseases’ elimination or control. He said that the Region’s new five-year action plan serves as an essential road map. The delegates passed a resolution endorsing the action plan and asking the Regional Director to seek more international support.
