The International Council for Public Health Guidance is established by the WoIDMo to respond to matters of public health. This Council operates independently from the WoIDMo and is governed by its own rules and regulations.
For its governance and decision making processes, the WoIDMo has adopted a multi stakeholder governance model, consisting of an expert community-driven process of cooperation and governance, in order to balance a complex set of forces, stakeholders and requirements for different geographical regions and issues pertaining to infectious diseases and health in general.
Through the adoption of this model the WoIDMo strives to be a modern organization that values openness and participation with a true international community, concentrating expertise to provide guidance on how we trans-nationally deal with the issues of infectious diseases in a highly democratic environment and outside of the control of national governments.
The primary mission of the Council is to provide a path to ensure countries and global institutions effectively address health threats.
The Council is currently being assembled. More updates will follow soon.
