The World Health Organization and the Special Unit for South-South Cooperation of the United Nations Development Program are pleased to inform you that we are organizing the 2nd Global South-South Development Expo (GSSD Expo) in conjunction with the 6th Annual United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation, to be held on 15-17 December 2009 in Washington DC. The Expo will exhibit initiatives that have made significant contributions to human development in the global South and that have provided solutions to address Climate Change, Food Security and Global Health that could be replicated, scaled up or adapted across developing countries.
We would like to invite you to nominate an initiative that has provided an effective solution to a public health problem by succeeding on the basis of , innovation and partnership.
The South Development Solution (SDS) could be a Southern-grown solution, a South-South partnership solution, a North-South-South triangular partnership solution, a South-South-multilateral organization solution, a public-private partnership solution and/or a combination of these. The SDS should also show its direct contribution, in concrete terms, to one or more of the Millennium Development Goals and should be supported by quantitative and/or qualitative data, along with audio-visual materials.
An independent committee will review all submissions to select the three South Development Solutions related to Global Health that will be exhibited at the GSSD Expo in the World Bank Main Complex and awarded during a special ceremony.
The deadline for submission of the nomination form was 15 November 2009. The nomination process is now closed.
