Dear IFHIMA Colleagues and Friends,

as an NGO in official relation with WHO, IFHIMA is involved in different projects, such as for example, the WHO Education Implementation Committee of International Classifications.

In this context we received the following WHO “Call for Expressions of Interest for the assessment of WHO’s ICD revision process”.

In brief, WHO is seeking for a contractor (e.g. a consultant company) that will conduct an interim assessment of the 11th version of ICD that is in the development status
and will also analyze the relevance and effectiveness of the planned features of ICD 11 in meeting the needs of the key stakeholders in WHO Member States.

Details can be found in the attached file or by following the link below.

If you are interested in this work, please submit your expressions of interest to the WHO, email-address and submission deadline see below.

With best regards

Angelika Haendel
on behalf of the entire IFHIMA board

ICD-11 revision

Dear Madam/Sir,

We would like to draw your attention to the attached call for Expressions of Interest for the assessment of WHO’s revision process for the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). You may also access the same document from our website at

This request for Expressions of Interest is to solicit an interim assessment of the ICD Revision Process, which is independent, impartial and objective. The assessment would address goals, content, process, and progress of the work to date, and could lead to recommendations to stop, revise, eliminate, replace, maintain, or further strengthen different aspects of WHO’s ICD Revision Process.

Expressions of interest must be submitted to on or before 31 July 2014 in order to be considered.

Please feel free to forward this email to other parties that you may suggest would be interested in this work.
