71st World Health Assembly
IPSF are pleased to announce that the call for the IPSF delegation applications for the 71st World Health Assembly (WHA) is officially open.
The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of the World Health Organization(WHO). Every year, the event is attended by delegations from all WHO Member States and Non-State Actors, and focuses on a specific health agenda prepared by the Executive Board. The main functions of the World Health Assembly are to determine the policies of the Organization, appoint the Director-General, supervise financial policies, and review and approve the proposed program budget. IPSF acts as a non-state actor during this event using this opportunity to voice our opinions on matters important to us.
The 71st World Health Assembly will be held between the 21st and the 26th of May 2018, in Geneva, Switzerland.
[The IPSF Training sessions are planned to be held from 19th May 2018 in Geneva in preparation for the WHA. More details and confirmation of the dates will be shared after the selection of candidates]
