WHO Issues a Call for Nomination of Strategic and Technical Advisory Group of Experts (STAGE) Members

20 November, 2019

Dear Neil,

We would appreciate it if HIFA can share this call through its network.

WHO has issued a call for nomination experts on a new standing advisory committee called STAGE.

STAGE will be the strategic and technical advisory group to WHO for Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent Health, and Nutrition and will report to the Director-General of WHO. Members must be acknowledged experts with an outstanding record of achievements in their field of expertise with a broader understanding of MNCAH&N issues.

WHO is therefore soliciting proposals globally for nominations of experts to serve on STAGE. Nominations of female candidates and candidates from low-and middle-income countries are specifically encouraged.

The call for nomination can be found at this web link: https://www.who.int/maternal_child_adolescent/stage/en/ or https://www.who.int/maternal_child_adolescent/stage/call-for-nominations....

We would appreciate it if you can nominate suitable candidates or self-nominate.

Nominations or candidate applications should be received no later than 9 December 2019 to the STAGE Secretariat at WHO: stagemncahn@who.int .

The inaugural meeting of STAGE will be on 30 April to 1 May 2020 in Geneva.

We would like to reach out to a wider MNCAH&N audience through the HIFA network. Please circulate widely through all your networks.
