Deadline: 29 September 2017

WHO has launched an online consultation on the WHO Discussion Paper (version dated 11 September 2017) entitled “Draft approach on the prevention and management of conflicts of interest in the policy development and implementation of nutrition programmes at country level”. Member States, organizations of the UN system, and non-State actors are invited to provide feedback in response to the WHO Discussion Paper.

Questions to consider

  • Is the document easy to read, using the right language?
  • Does this address the concerns requested from the WHA?
  • Are the elements conceptually and practically sound?
