Call for Expression of Interest in Advocacy Reference Group

PMNCH is leading a partnership effort to address the impact of COVID-19 on the health and rights of women, children and adolescents. A joint Call to Action aims to mobilize more than 1,000 PMNCH partners and to engage new constituencies in a campaign to advocate for continued access to essential and quality care for sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and the need to invest in and strengthen primary healthcare systems. More information is here.

We are forming an Advocacy Reference Group to serve as a sounding board and to facilitate the exchange of information and build supportive networks among partners engaged in advocacy and communication strategies for women's, children's and adolescents' health.

New Science Council to be established

WHO news - 06.08.2020

As a science-based institution, WHO is always striving to be at the forefront of scientific progress and its potential to improve health for all. A new WHO Science Council comprising international experts from a broad range of disciplines will support WHO in interpreting cutting-edge scientific and medical knowledge, as well as the latest advances in technology.

The Science Division’s Research for Health department will facilitate the Council’s work in advising on WHO’s top science, research, and innovation priorities, focusing on areas of greatest urgency and identifying the biggest gaps in evidence. The Council’s recommendations will be given to the Director-General as part of an expansion of the scope of the science underpinning WHO’s public health work.

New global health challenges are increasingly accompanied by rapid advances in science and  technology, including solutions that arise in nonmedical fields and which employ innovative techniques. In accordance with WHO’s directing and coordinating role in health, the Organization is seeking advice from the Science Council on state-of-the-art evidence-based responses to health challenges.

The terms of reference for the Science Council, along with information on the call for nominations, are here.

About Masks

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
