Join the Emerging Voices for Global

Health Governance Board

Attention EV4GH alumni!

Apply for a role on the Emerging Voices for Global Health’s governance board. The board comprises eight seats representing different regions, with six representatives to be elected for their respective regions. Regional representatives must be citizens or permanent residents of the region they represent, and only EV alumni from that region can vote for the regional representative.

In this call, we focus on the election of new governance members that needs to happen in the coming weeks. As in the past, these will be ‘partial’ elections, in order to maintain some institutional memory. Still, most governance members have retired after the Colombia venture, and thus need to be replaced. Only for the European region and African region (Anglophone seat), the representative stays on for another term.

The new governance board will comprise of eight seats representing different regions – 6 WHO  regions, with Africa having 2 seats (Anglo- and Franco-phone), due to the comparatively extensive number of EV alumni from the region; and also one (new) seat, the “Global Seat”. The elections are  open to elect six representatives for the following regions: 

  1. African region: 1 Seat for the Francophone 
  2. Americas region: 1 Seat 
  3. Western Pacific region: 1 Seat 
  4. Eastern Mediterranean region: 1 Seat 
  5. South & East Asia 
  6. Global: 1 seat 

The global seat is open to EVs with mixed regional identities and will be voted on by all EV alumni.

To apply, send a proposal for strengthening the EV network and a short CV to by March 27, 2023. Voting will take place online between March 27 and April 14, with results announced by April 20, 2023. For more information refer to the Governance Board call and ToR.
