The WHO-FIC Planning Committee

The Planning Committee conducts the business of the WHO FIC Network between annual meetings. It monitors progress of the work program and plans the annual meeting. The Planning Committee comprises an elected Chair, the heads of centre responsible for the most recent annual meeting, the next annual meeting and the following annual meeting, plus the Committee Chairs. In addition, WHO headquarters is a member of the committee. The Chair is elected at an annual meeting of the Network for a term of two years.
