Working Group on Health Cooperation (WGHC)

 

This working group serves as a platform to promote multilateral and bilateral coordination among the six countries of the Greater Mekong Subregion, particularly for cross-border health initiatives.

An annual meeting of the WGHC, development partners, civil society organizations, and other relevant organizations working on health cooperation in the subregion is held in the last quarter of each year. It is a forum for strategic discussion and planning. The annual meeting is hosted and chaired by a GMS country, rotating on an alphabetical basis.
