Nominations process

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

- works with the Board member and the constituency to develop the terms of reference for the seat;

- posts a call for nominations on the GAVI website, encouraging female candidates to apply;

- sends a call for nominations directly to research and technical health institutes within the GAVI Alliance contact list, encouraging female candidates to apply;

- forms a shortlist to be interviewed by the subcommittee.

The subcommittee voices its preference for a Board member and alternate at the next Board meeting.
