EU will also present proposals for World Health Organization reform

A scientific advisory board for the World Health Organization’s recently established Pan-European Commission on Health and Sustainable Development will meet for the first time on 6 November, kicking off its role in helping the commission rethink policy priorities using insights from countries’ handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
