The 9th annual Senior Officials Meeting was hosted by the Commission on 7 March 2012 in Brussels. The principal purpose of the SOM was, at global and regional levels, to review progress on the wide range of topics where cooperation has been ongoing over the last year, to look at new challenges and to plan for further cooperation during 2012. Six broad categories were used to frame the discussions - health security, innovation and health, health systems strengthening, health inequalities, health information and e-health. Discussions also focussed on how EU Delegations and WHO offices might work together more effectively and exchange information on the health situation.The SOM of 2011 had initiated the process of working on the collaboration between the two organisations in these areas, both at European and global levels and had adopted a series of roadmaps at European level. The 2012 SOM allowed an assessment of progress on these roadmaps and review as appropriate.
