Call for Nomination: independent Expert Review Group on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health
In 2011, following a recommendation of the UN Commission on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health, the World Health Organization (WHO) established a time-limited independent Expert Review Group (iERG) which will operate until 2015. Membership of one of the seven members of this group will be terminated following a change in affiliation that is deemed as resulting in a conflict of interest.
In order to replace the departing member, WHO is once again soliciting nominations from all stakeholders of the Global Strategy. Among the candidates, we are looking for parliamentarians and politicians.
Self-nominations will not be considered. Individuals or organizations wishing to propose candidates are requested to submit nominations via the online form below by 31 August 2012.
The following should be submitted with the nomination:
• Letter of not more than 1000 words describing the nominee’s technical knowledge, experience, achievements and identifying specific work to be recognized
• Curriculum Vitae
• Signed WHO Declaration of Interest form
• Brief biographical sketch not exceeding 500 words
The selection committee will assess the nominees using the following criteria:
• Relevance of education, technical background and related knowledge and skills
• Depth and breadth of experience
• Demonstrated leadership in the field of accountability
The iERG members are expected to exercise autonomous, professional judgment and serve in an independent capacity until the end of the mandate of iERG in 2015. If you have difficulties accessing or using the online form, please contact us at acc_commission
