Sign-on Letter: Support to Uphold the WHO FENSA Process

May 21, 2024

Recently, Global Health Council has been working to ensure that civil society organizations are able to obtain official relations status with the WHO. During this year’s WHO Executive Board Meeting, Member States failed to approve the Secretariat’s recommended list of CSOs applying for official relation status, despite all of the criteria having been met. GHC sent a sign-on letter with over 100 signatures from both NSAs and Non-NSAs/CSOs to the chairs of the WHO Programme, Budget and Administration Committee, and the Executive Board. The letter was also forwarded to Dr. Tedros.
