The next hearing of the Intergovernmental Organisations Select Committee will be on Wednesday 26th March at 3.30pm. The hearing is open to the public as usual.
Our witness will be Dr Scott Dowell, Director of the Global Disease Detection Program of the US Centre for Disease Control in Atlanta, USA. http://www.cdc.gov/ The evidence will be taken by video link again.
The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) plays a very important role detecting and preventing disease world wide. They have a number of centres around the world. One of the areas of interest for us is how they work with the World Health Organisation (WHO) http://www.who.int/en/ and how they avoid yet more duplication of effort and expense. It should be an interesting session and I will make a link to the video hearing after the meeting.
