    DECISIONS
    The Board:

      16.1 Accepted the nomination of Norway to assume the industrialized country government seat being vacated by Canada at the end of 2004. Norway, whose term will be from January 2005 to December 2007, will be represented by Norad Senior Executive Adviser Dr Sigrun Mogedal.

      16.2 Accepted the nomination of Benin, Cambodia, and Ghana to assume developing country government seats, considering that the Board has decided to increase the representation by developing countries by one seat (see section 7 on governance). Two seats are being vacated at the end of 2004 Mongolia and Mozambique. Benin will be represented by Minister of Public Health Dr Yvette Seignon; Cambodia will be represented by Minister of Health Prof. Eng Huot; and Ghana will be represented by Minister of Health Dr K. Afriyie. To stagger turnover in the future one of the three members, chosen in consultation with the Chair, will have a term of four years instead of three.

      16.3 Accepted the nomination of the International Pediatric Association (IPA) to assume the NGO seat that was vacated by the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in July 2003. The IPA, whose term will be from January 2005 to December 2007, will be represented by the current IPA president, Dr Adenike Grange.
