Governance

Governance & Leadership of IFHIMA

The IFHIMA Executive Board is the governing body of the federation, which is made up of eight (8) elected officers, i.e. the president, the president-elect and six (6) regional IFHIMA directors representing the six IFHIMA regions which are coterminous with the six WHO regions: Africa, the Americas, The Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, South East Asia and the Western Pacific. The immediate past president will serve on the executive board in an ex-officio capacity for at least one year. An ex-officio board member, membership chair/treasurer, will be appointed by the president at the beginning of each term of office, and will serve the same term as the president. The executive board meets face-to-face annually and works by means of e-mail and quarterly conference calls in between meetings. The executive board reports to the general assembly, which meets at the time of the international congress every three years.
