Monaco Conseil Executif OMS

A Monegasque delegation, led by HE Ms Carole Lanteri, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Principality to the UN in Geneva, is taking part in the 140th session of the Executive Board of the World Health Organisation from January 23 until February 1.

In his introductory remarks in Geneva, Dr Chan, Director General of the organisation, pointed out that, in a period of increasing inequality in wealth, international public health remained a unifying force for achieving equitable social outcomes within the framework of the Sustainable Development Program to 2030.

This session of the Executive Board will also be marked by a decisive step in the process of electing the new Director General of WHO, which will culminate at the World Health Assembly in May. Discussions on budgetary issues, financing and governance of the organisation will also play an important part.

The Executive Board is one of the governing bodies of WHO, composed of 34 elected members and meeting twice a year to facilitate the work of the World Health Assembly by implementing and making recommendations to the World Health Assembly.

As a member since 1948, Monaco contributes fully to the formulation of the policies of the WHO, taking positions on the strategic orientations of the organisation and supporting resolutions of particular importance to the Principality.
