ORGANISATION MONDIALE DE LA SANTÉ

SECOND WORLD HEALTH ASSEMBLY

A2/12 c X 8 April 1949

ORIGINAL; ENGLISH

^ INSURANCE AGAINST TRAVEL ACCIDENTS OF DELEGATES

TO THE HEALTH ASSEMBLY AND OF MEMBERS OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD (Provisional Agenda item 1 0 . 7 . 1 )

1 The World Health Assembly at its f i r s t session authorized the reimbursement of the actual travelling expenses of one delegate from each country to the second World Health Assembly. I t also decided that members of the Executive Board shall be reimbursed their actual transportation expenses between their normal residence and the place of the meeting of the Executive Board.

2 The question arises as to whether WHO, having accepted to pay the travelling expenses, has also incurred the responsibility for insurance against travel accidente whicl* may occur.

2 . 1 In the light of a legal opinion obtained, it would not appear that the Organization is under any legal l i a b i l i t y to provide insurance cover while an Assembly delegate or member of the Executive Board i s

travelling to or from the meeting of the Assembly or Board, unless such accidents are due to the Organization's own negligence. The fact that the travelling expenses are paid by WHO does not involve the Organization in any new l i a b i l i t y , the expenses being paid in order to relieve

individual governments from charges which otherwise they would have to bear. Liability might arise where a delegate or a Board member was

summoned in a hurry with instructions to use a particular mode of transport or where a delegate or member of the Board was sent on a mission by the Organization involving more than a normal degree of risk. In such cases i t would be appropriate for the Organization to cover the risk by insurance.

2 . 2 Considering the above legal opinion, the following draft resolution is submitted for consideration by the Assembly:

The Health Assembly-

considering that in virtue of the decision of the World Health Assembly the Organization has accepted to reimburse the travelling expenses to the Health Assemblies of one delegate or representative of each Member or Associate Member of WHO and of the members of the Executive Board to meetings of the Board,

STATES that the Organization does not accept any liability for travel risks incurred by this provision, and,

REQUESTS the Director-General to communicate this decision to the governments of Member States, notifying them that H O assumes no

responsibility to provide insurance cover for persons travelling on their

behalf to meetings of the Health Assembly and of the Executive Board.
