On January 20, 2011, 9 civil society organizations sent a letter to the WHO Executive Board registering an objection to the selection of Dr. Paul Herrling of Novartis to the WHO Consultative Expert Working Group on Research and Development: Financing and Coordination. The groups signing the letter were:

              CIDEPRO

              Déclaration de Berne - Berne Declaration

              HAI Europe

              HAI Global

              Health GAP (Global Access Project)

              Knowledge Ecology International

              Médecins Sans Frontières, Campaign for Access to Essential Medicines

              Oxfam International

              Third World Network

TO: Dr. Mihaly Kökény, Chairman, WHO Executive Board

CC: Dr. Paulo Buss, Vice-Chairman, WHO Executive Board

 

The undersigned organizations oppose the appointment of Novartis executive Dr Paul Herrling to the new WHO Consultative Expert Working Group (CEWG) on R&D Financing. In collaboration with Novartis and the

industry trade association IFPMA, Dr Herrling is the author of the Fund for R&D in Neglected Diseases (FRIND) proposal. Dr. Herrling is also the co-author of the PDP Plus proposal. The CEWG is expected to evaluate the FRIND and the PDP Plus proposals. The appointment of Dr. Herrling creates a conflict of interest. We note that a conflict of interest may exist even if no unethical or improper act results from it, and also

that both actual and perceived conflicts of interest can undermine the reputation and work of the CEWG.

Sincerely,

CIDEPRO
