Peer review process

A full draft of the guidelines was circulated for comment to members of the Guidelines Development Group and the external peer review group.   All members of the Guidelines Development Group and peer review group completed WHO declaration of interest forms (which included requests for information on receipt of payment for consultations and participation in advisory panels). A total of 37 Guidelines Development Group members (excluding WHO staff) and all peer reviewers signed declarations of interest.  In order to contain costs for attendance at the meeting employers of members of the group who could afford to were requested to sponsor their travel and others who could not were sponsored by WHO. This arrangement was made very clear in correspondence to Guidelines Development Group Members. Seven members of the Guidelines Development Group declared receipt of remuneration (via consultancy) from another university and five of the seven peer reviewers.
