Standing Committee

An advisory report is usually prepared in a multidisciplinary committee and only becomes final after it has been reviewed in the Standing Committee.

The Standing Committee reviews the main points of draft advisory reports. This involves consistency with other advisory reports, grade of evidence, and compatibility with relevant developments in the field. The Standing Committee also discusses what is necessary for a successful follow-up of advisory reports. After it has been reviewed the advisory report is presented to one or more ministers with a letter of presentation by the President or Vice President of the Health Council.
