Applications invited for Health 2020 policy consultants

WHO/Europe is seeking public health professionals, health academics and others with wide health policy development expertise to join a pool of accredited policy consultants to support its European Member States as they implement the European policy framework for health and well-being, Health 2020.

Selected consultants will be invited to attend a 2-day induction training at WHO/Europe’s head office in Copenhagen, Denmark, after which they may be matched to individual country requests depending on the need. Consultants will operate under the supervision of the Director, Division of Policy and Governance for Health and Well-being and other relevant technical units.

An initial induction for potential Health 2020 consultants was held in January 2014; the next one will be held during the spring/summer. WHO/Europe will then have a critical mass of health experts who are engaged and committed to the implementation of Health 2020 throughout the WHO European Region. 

Interested candidates are invited to respond to the vacancy notice published on the WHO e-Recruitment website. Russian-speaking candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.

The deadline for applications is 8 June 2014.
