Message from our President (23 January 2015)

President2 Advocacy, Africa, and the WOHD campaign: 2015 opens with busy schedule for FDI
Dr Tin Chun Wong, FDI President

IIn this, my first message for 2015, I would like to highlight a couple of events taking place in the early part of the coming year. The FDI calendar starts out, as every year, with its presence as commentator and observer at the Executive Board of the World Health Organization (WHO),

The WHO EB is composed of 34 individuals each designated by a Member State, the January session is the most important of two yearly meetings designed to put into effect the decisions and policies of the World Health Assembly, to advise it and generally to facilitate its work. 

This year, the EB takes place from 26 January to 3 February in Geneva. Its interest stems not only from the key statements and policy decisions on the agenda, but also from the forums, workshops and side events created around the Executive Board by national governments, health-related non-governmental organizations and other entities.

For FDI, it provides a huge opportunity to make representations to WHO in fields of mutual concern.
