What is governance what should it cover l.jpg
What is governance? What should it cover?

  • System of decision making processes

  • Roles - contribution made to the group

  • Responsibilities - areas which show leadership and manage resources

  • Accountabilities - the outcomes for which they are answerable.

  • Roles, responsibilities and accountabilities are only meaningful in the context of the purpose of the group.


Relationship between governance and purpose l.jpg
Relationship between governance and purpose

  • The “preamble” to the draft proposal should be renamed “Terms of reference” and include a general statement of the main purpose of the group.

  • The main purpose of the WCG is the promotion and co-ordination of international co-operation in the area of heath statistics by focusing on disability measures suitable for censuses and national surveys for the purpose of policy formulation and analysis.

  • Expand “purpose of policy” to include conclusion of position paper.


From general purpose to specific aims l.jpg
From general purpose to specific aims

  • The “Terms of reference” should include statements of the specific aims of the group.

  • These specific aims should describe outputs (type of disability measures) with a prioritisation rating.

  • Methodological issues represent operational qualifications of the implementation of the disability measures and as such are part of the WCG discussions but not a specific aim.


Evaluation of disability measures l.jpg
Evaluation of disability measures

  • For high priority measures the WCG should assess:

    • the suitability of the indicator for policy purposes;

    • the technical properties of each measure;

    • general availability in a wide range of countries;

    • use for national policies and priorities (where known);

    • frequency with which comparisons should be made.


Operating principles and structure l.jpg
Operating principles and structure

  • Who are the stakeholders and what is their relative influence and accountability?

  • What are the arrangements for reviewing and ensuring compliance with governance principles especially for a group where participation is voluntary?

  • If meetings are held each year, what reports are expected and when?
