This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

David Byrne is to become a special envoy for the World Health Organization (WHO) at the end of his tenure as European Commissioner for health and consumer protection. (That was due to be October 31, but Commission President-Designate Jose-Manuel Barroso decided on October 27 not to submit the new Commission for Parliament's approval, due to objections to the nomination of one Commission (human rights). A new Commission will now not be submitted for some weeks.) Mr Byrne's new role will be to facilitate the process of negotiation of a revised draft of regulations in view of the coming meeting of officials from WHO's 192 member states on November 1-12. The final draft will be presented to the world health assembly in May 2005.
