Philippines 0108 B(l)
14 May 1969
I have the honour to refer to your Government's request dated I March 1968 for a consultant in the field of nutrition (goiter control) for one month in 1970. 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: To assist the Health Department in:
a. evaluating the goiter control project as implemented (stage 1) in 1969;
b. planning the further implementation of goiter control measures;
c. studying the prevalence of endemic cretinism in selected areas of high and low goiter endemicity.
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 the consultant during his assignment. It would be appreciated if the name of this counterpart could be communicated to the 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.
