Call for nominations of new board organizations

People that Deliver (PtD) prides itself on having a diverse board not only in terms of organizational characteristics, but also in geographical representation, language, and health program focus. PtD’s board is comprised of supply chain leaders from seven key constituencies:

  1. Governments or other representatives of low and middle-income countries

  3. Multilateral organizations, including regional organizations

  5. Academic/research/training institutions
