Independent Accountability Panel (IAP)-Call for Applications

October 27, 2015

The Partnership for Maternal Newborn & Child Health (The Partnership) is soliciting applications for the United Nations Secretary General’s Independent Accountability Panel (IAP) for the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health. The deadline for applications is 18th November 2015. The IAP is the principal advisory group to the UN Secretary General for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health in view of the Secretary General’s Global Strategy. The IAP will produce an annual global report on the “State of Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health”, and report directly to the UN Secretary General.

The call for applications is now live on The Partnership’s website at  http://www.who.int/pmnch/media/news/2015/iap/en/. Please send any suggestions to Breshna Orya (oryab@who.int) for where you think the Secretariat should advertise to get the right types of candidates (geography, expertise etc.) noting that the IAP is expected to command attention from the global community across the areas of focus of the Global Strategy, including monitor, review and act, as well as survive, thrive and transform.
