This call builds on World Health Organization’s enduring efforts in the field of Genomics and follows the publication of the Report “Accelerating access to genomics for global health: promotion, implementation, collaboration, and ethical, legal and social issues” by the WHO Science Council in 2022.
The WHO is now seeking to establish a Technical Advisory Group on Genomics to Support and provide technical guidance on activities implemented by the WHO Secretariat to accelerate access to genomics technologies for global health, with a particular focus on human genomics.
WHO welcomes expressions of interest from professionals with expertise in a diverse set of fields related to genomics (and in particular human genomics), the application of genomics technologies for cancer, congenital disorders, rare diseases, R&D in the field of genome-based knowledge, and implementation of genomics technologies. Attention will also be given to ensure inclusion of relevant expertise in ethics, law and relevant social sciences domains.
