Design your future with WHO!

25 October 2017, SUVA – To fulfil WHO's mandate as the authority on international health, its Constitution notes the importance of "recruiting staff from as wide a geographical basis as possible." This is so that WHO, and the global health community, can benefit from the skills and experiences of all Member States. However, some Pacific island countries remain either "unrepresented" or "underrepresented", meaning that there are few WHO staff from these countries. As part of efforts to address this issue, WHO in the Western Pacific Region is convening workshops to attract promising young professionals to join WHO.

For the first time, the workshop, known as "GoWHO", will be coming to the Pacific, hosted by Fiji National University in Suva. The workshop will be held on 7 December 2017 from 8:30am to 2:30pm. Participants will learn about WHO and the Organization's recruitment process, including preparation tips. Participants will also have the chance to interact with WHO staff members, respond to a competency-based interview question and get feedback.
