Recruitment for external members for WHO’s Guideline Review Committee

The WHO Guideline Review Committee (GRC) seeks new external members for the 2018-2020 term. The GRC oversees WHO’s quality assurance process for all of its guidelines (information products that contain technical recommendations across a wide variety of topics). This committee consists of 30 members from across technical units at WHO headquarters, as well as one member from each WHO regional office and five external members. GRC members serve a 3-year term and involves 40-50 hours of work per year, including virtual attendance at ten 2-hour monthly meetings and the performance of peer review of 3-4 documents.

We seek members with a broad range of public health experience, who have critical appraisal and basic epidemiology skills, and who can thoughtfully evaluate and peer review draft planning proposals and final guidelines. This work is uncompensated.

If you are interested in being considered, please send your CV and a brief letter of interest to norriss@who.int prior to 22 December 2017.
