The 146th session of the WHO Executive Board will take place from 3 to 8 February 2020. The agenda and provisional programme of work are available now as part of the full (but not yet complete) documentation of EB146: See and follow #EB146 on Twitter for updates and early assessments.

MMI Network members an project partners who want to attend the WHO Executive Board session as part of the MMI delegation are requested to register at the MMI Secretariat by Friday evening, 17 January 2020, so that we can submit to WHO our list of delegates on Monday 20 January, within the given deadline.

The MMI Network will again host the PHM “WHO Watch” project in its delegation. Commentaries on various agenda items are in the making – as you can see here in the great “WHO Tracker” tool. An agenda item that needs and deserves particular civil society attention will be the one on “WHO reform” (22.1) with WHO Secretariat proposals on the participation of non-state actors in WHO governing body meetings.

And MMI will again actively participate in the civil society meeting ahead of the EB session, on 31 January and 1 February 2020, organized by the Geneva Global Health Hub and its members and working groups. The civil society meeting will include a workshop on the “Right to Health in the Digital Age”) on Friday and a series of briefings on “Civil society perspectives on selected global health topics: EB146 and beyond” on Saturday. Registration for the civil society meeting will open on 8 January only on the website indicated above.
