I. Organizational, administrative and other matters

Cooperation between the United Nations and the Organization of American States

This item was included in the agenda of the forty-second session of the General Assembly, in 1987, at the request of 12 Member States (A/42/191 and A/42/191/Add.1 and A/42/191/Add.2).

The General Assembly considered the question at its forty-second and forty-third sessions, and biennially thereafter (resolutions 42/11, 43/4, 45/10, 47/11, 49/5, 51/4, 53/9, 55/15 and 57/157).

At its fifty-ninth session, the General Assembly called for a prompt mobilization of resources to meet the emergency needs of Caribbean countries, especially Haiti and Grenada; called for the continuation of the intraregional dialogue and coordination between the United Nations and the Organization of American States in curbing the illicit traffic in weapons; and called for an increase in financial resources and the strengthening of national and regional programmes for combating HIV/AIDS and an increase in the supply of safe, effective and essential medicines at a reasonable cost (resolution 59/257).

The General Assembly also considered the question at its sixty-first session.
