IHP + CIVIL SOCIETY CONSULTATIVE GROUP: Call for nominations

The Consultative Group will also support the northern and southern civil society representatives and alternate representatives to the Scaling up Reference Group (SuRG) of the IHP+ to ensure country level engagement and participation of non-traditional CS organizations, including women's groups, faith based organizations and patient care groups in the monitoring of country level progress of the IHP+ in compact signatory countries and to hold all IHP+ signatories accountable for delivering results. Maternal, newborn and child health NGOs are encouraged to participate in this important process accessing full Terms of Reference (TOR) for nominations online.
