Framework for Engagement with Non-State Actors
In February, WHO met to discuss the Framework for Engagement with Non-State Actors (FENSA). This framework will be proposed for adoption at the upcoming WHA, following additional discussions that will take place in late April. If passed, the framework would set strict new rules and processes for WHO to abide by when engaging with non-state actors. These policies would impact a wide range of issues from participation in governance meetings to WHO collaboration with local NGOs. Read the brief summary of the discussion.
