AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION CONCERNING THE REQUEST FOR CONSULTANT IN THE FIELD OF ARBOVIROLOGY
Reference: This Agreement is also published in VIII DFA TS No. 1, p. 126.
10 June 1969
I have the honour to refer to your Government's request dated 5 March 1969, for a consultant in the field of arbovirology for three months in 1969. I am happy to inform you that WHO is able to meet this request.
The terms of reference of this consultant will be as follows:
1. To assist the Government in the planning and conduct of clinical, laboratory and epidemiological investigations of arbovirus infections in particular dengue and dengue-haemorrhagic fever groups.
2. To prepare a report on his findings and recommendations particularly for further action.
Particular emphasis is placed on the provision of all available background documentation relative to the consultant's duties and on the provision of a Government counterpart to work with and assist a consultant during his assignment. It would be appreciated if the name of this counterpart could be communicated to this Regional Office at an early date.
The Basic Agreement concluded between your" Government and the World Health Organization on 28 December 1950 will govern the implementation of this request and the respective obligations of WHO and the Government including, inter alia, provision of transport within the country and secretarial services, if required.
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, the Government shall insure WHO, its advisers, agents and employees for civil liability under the laws of the country in respect of any vehicles provided for use in meeting this request.
If you find these proposals acceptable, you are invited to sign five copies of this letter. Three are for the use of your Government; the remaining copies should be returned to this Office.
I have the honour to be,
Your obedient Servant,
(Sgd.) FRANCISCO J. DY, M.D.
