Requests for Technical Assistance 


The Network provides a unique and cost-effective resource for technical assistance across cross-cutting health issues. The product and services of the Network are in addition to the work and input provided, usually at no cost, directly from the WHO Regional and Country Offices. This is required to meet the increased demand from Member States, and is charged for on the basis that greater financial resources are available to meet this demand in many countries. As such, the services of the Network are fee-based, with the goal of operating in a manner that is commercially viable for the public good. This fee-based service is therefore quality assured and competitive. Fees are negotiated based on considerations of salary cost recovery, recommended consultant rates of the applicable agency and the financial options of the Client. WHO may also make exceptional arrangements with collaborating centres on the request for assistance for Member States, especially the Ministry of Health.
