Introduction

Statements by non-State actors in official relations with WHO at the WHO governing bodies meetings

This on-line platform is being provided for non-State actors in official relations with WHO to post the statements they intend to present at the WHO Governing Bodies meetings so they may make their views known in advance of the debates.

The statements posted by the entities reflect solely the views of the non-State actors concerned. Posted statements do not reflect the views of, nor are endorsed by, WHO. WHO Secretariat shall in no way be responsible for the accuracy, veracity and completeness of these statements, nor for the titles of individuals, organizations and/or specific doctrines contained therein.

Statements are expected to focus on technical issues and be directly relevant to both the agenda item and to the document prepared for the item.

Statements are not intended to raise issues of political nature that are unrelated to topic, nor contain any inappropriate or offensive reference to Member States. The nomenclature used to refer to Member States or areas of Member States is expected to follow that of the United Nations.

The summary records of the Executive Board, which will be published after the meetings, will reflect only statements that were read out during the working sessions.

The statements are posted for a limited time period as determined by WHO, and will not be retained on the website thereafter.
