Commission on Macroeconomics and Health

Terms of Reference

WHO has established a Commission on Macroeconomics and Health (CMH) to assess critically and, where appropriate, to extend the evidence base concerning the following topics:

The CMH may add topics; and it may choose to exemplify its findings with disease-, country-, or regionally-specific analyses. It will draw on and contribute to ongoing initiatives elsewhere.

The CMH will provide analysis with a view to assisting WHO and the international community in their consideration of issues relating to health and development in low and middle-income countries. It is accordingly foreseen that the results of its work will be published by WHO and widely disseminated.

The composition of the CMH is intended to include macroeconomists from academia, governments, and agencies. It may, in addition, include a health economist, a public health specialist, a biomedical scientist and a current or former health minister. Members will serve in their personal capacities but those from governments or agencies may designate alternates for some meetings. The Director-General of WHO will appoint the Members and Chair of the CMH.

The CMH will complete its work by December 2001, unless the Director-General of WHO authorizes a later date.
