WHO Reform

The World Health Organization (WHO) is undergoing a process of reform to better equip itself to address the increasingly complex healthcare challenges of the 21st century. 

As part of this reform process, WHO is exploring ways to more effectively collaborate with relevant stakeholders including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), partnerships, the private sector, foundations, and other relevant stakeholders.

This reform process will have implications for how NGOs, including patients’ organizations, will be able to engage with WHO in the future and IAPO has responded to a number of consultations on this work.

WHO's new policy aims to engage with non-state actors in a way that: 

  • Demonstrates a clear benefit to public health
  • Respects the intergovernmental nature of WHO
  • Manages real, perceived and potential conflicts of interest
  • Ensures transparency, openness and inclusiveness

Over the last year, IAPO has developed a number of responses to this policy. In our responses, we have highlighted the importance of:

  • Patient involvement at all levels of healthcare policy-making
  • Defining what constitutes a conflict of interest
  • A clear framework for interaction between WHO and non-state actors

Read the latest response, dated October 2013, here.

Following this consultation, WHO will be drafting a new policy which will be discussed at the January 2013 session of the Executive Board.

Read IAPO's previous consultations on this, dated March 2013 and November 2012.
