Nominations process 

There is a Secretariat-facilitated process in place, where the Secretariat:

- reviews the current terms of reference with the sitting developing country government Board members;

- issues a call for nominations (for board members and alternates) directly to ministers of health of GAVI-eligible countries in the applicable region with copies to regional offices of WHO and UNICEF, urging female applicants to apply;

- distributes candidate expressions of interest to the sitting developing country government board members;

- arranges for sitting government developing countries' Board members to meet by telephone to consider the candidates, including alternates; and

- submits the nominee Board members and alternates to the Governance Committee, for review and recommendation to be appointed by the Board at its next meeting.
