The 150th session of the Executive Board of WHO from January 19 to 24, 2022 saw the renewal of the Pasteur Network association as a "Non-State actor in official relations with WHO". This recognition is valid for a period of 3 years and follows the renewal that already took place in 2019.
Formalized by the WHO Executive Board on January 29, 2022, this decision recognizes non-State actors whose commitments go hand in hand with those of the Organization. They must therefore contribute significantly to the improvement of public health while respecting the WHO Constitution.
The contribution of actors in "official relationship" with WHO is based on a collaboration plan between the two parties that describes the objectives and activities to be carried out for the three-year period of the mandate. This plan is drafted in accordance with the thirteenth General Programme of work and the Budget Programme and is consistent with the Framework of engagement with Non-State actors.
Pasteur Network, legally represented by an association, will thus contribute to the promotion of the General Programme of Work while offering technical support to WHO through the transmission of data and the realization of training to strengthen country capacities.
The list of structures that have been renewed can be found in Annex 2 of Report by the Director-General.
