SUMMARY OF IBFAN’s Recommendations in addition to those sent by Democratising Global Health Coalition and Conflict of Interest Coalition..
Such ideas are described in box 5.1 in (page 25) in the IDS/ACF paper Aid for Nutrition: Using innovative financing to end undernutrition « First, developed country governments could guarantee a future market for products, and thereby give private companies confidence to invest in R&D and product development. A good example is the Advance Market Commitment (AMC) process, where governments guarantee the price of vaccines developed by pharmaceutical companies. This template could be a useful mechanism for the development of fortified foods, and ensuring the availability — and affordability — of materials for complementary and therapeutic feeding at scale.”
Here is the WHO text setting out the rationale for the consultation :
In response to the request of the Executive Board of WHO (Decision EB132(11)) to conduct public web-based consultations on the draft principles and policies of engagement with non-State actors, the WHO Secretariat welcomes interested parties to provide comments on the questions and issues related to WHO’s engagement with non-State actors (as outlined at the link below).
Inputs received from this consultation will inform the further development of principles, policies and procedures related to WHO’s engagement with non-State actors, including nongovernmental organizations and private commercial entities. All comments submitted are subject to review by the Secretariat prior to the Secretariat posting them on the WHO website. WHO reserves the right to summarize and/or edit any submission in consultation with the submitting party.
