The World Health Organization (WHO) has been a steadfast partner of MECIDS since its inception in 2001.  The WHO generously provides seasoned public health advisors for many of MECIDS projects, and they routinely participate in many of MECIDS’ training events.

Most recently in June 2012, when MECIDS conducted a public health workshop on land border crossings in Jerusalem, a cadre of senior-level WHO representatives attended the seminar.  They provided invaluable expertise throughout the two days of meetings, as officials from the three Ministries of Health fashioned a draft of a trilateral health agreement for regional land crossings.

MECIDS plans to hold additional land border crossing workshops with WHO advisors present to provide their veteran counsel and recommendations.
