The WHO Global Malaria Programme in 2018, reviewed WHO’s processes for developing and disseminating policy guidance on malaria. Our overall objective is to deliver timely, high quality guidance to malaria-endemic countries through processes that are more transparent, consistent, efficient and predictable.
Following the recommendations of the review, the Global Malaria Programme will convene a single Guidelines Development Group (GDG) to ensure consistency in process and development of all malaria recommendations.
The WHO Global Malaria Programme is currently issuing a “Call for experts” to serve as members of the newly formed GDG. This roster will also be used as the basis to convene future ERGs and technical consultations to provide advice to WHO.
Applications from the following groups are welcome, noting that this is not an exhaustive list; malaria experts in all technical areas; national malaria control programme managers; representatives of groups most affected by malaria, such as service users and representatives of disadvantaged groups; experts in assessing evidence and developing guidelines informed by evidence; and other technical experts including surveillance, health systems, health economics, equity, human rights and gender; community engagement; etc.
Deadline for application is April, 2019. For more information, click Here
