PHM annouces new WHO Tracker website!!

PHM is delighted to advise the launch of PHM’s new tool for following debate in WHO governing bodies: the WHO Tracker.   

The WHO Tracker (www.who-track.phmovement.org) enables users to follow particular issues across time and across WHO’s governing body meetings, both global and regional. The Tracker comprises separate pages for each meeting, in each case structured around the official agenda. Under each agenda item are links to key documents, debate and policy decisions including PHM commentaries. Not all meetings and not all items have been fully linked at this time. This work is ongoing.

Users can find specific meetings through the ‘meeting type’ buttons on the home page or by adding  /[meetingname] to the URL in the address bar.  The Items Search function enables users to find all meetings (all those which have been linked) where particular issues have been discussed to get a sense of the evolution of the issue across time, including the evolving PHM commentaries. 

We will welcome feedback, including broken links or failed searches or suggestions about further enhancements.

We are particularly interested in offers of volunteers to join the editing team, in particular for regional watches.
