NOTES FOR THE VPC Please ensure you enter your name and media outlet (use name/outlet). Kindly note, only questions from media (one per journalist) are allowed. When you sign in you will be automatically put in the meeting room.

WHO reserves the right to remove any participant whose behaviour causes any disruption. The event is also broadcast on WHO social media channels and you can follow it there. To ask a question, please click "raise hand" and this will enter you into the queue for questions. (It can be found under the tab: participants.)

Please make sure you have a microphone connected or active on your computer. Do not ask questions via the chat as we cannot guarantee that we will incorporate them into the q&a session.

For translation during the VPC, choices are under "interpretation" or "language interpretation" depending on which version of Zoom you use.

Note that due to the volume of questions, we are no longer able to take them from phone callers and interpretation is not available via telephone. Media contacts:
