Upcoming Consultation Events: June to September 2023

We have developed a first draft of the updated Standard, based on the feedback we received from individuals and organisations participating in the global consultation during 2022.

The first draft of the updated CHS will be published on this website on 6 June. Please check back then!

As part of this consultation phase, you will again be able to consult within your organisation or network.

There are a number of ways to share your views!

- Attend a series of regional consultation workshops taking place in Amman, Geneva, Panama, Dakar, Nairobi and Bangkok. Please find all relevant information here.

- Participate in a series of online webinars (in English, Arabic, French and Spanish) that will walk participants through the key changes and invite discussion and feedback. Dates and registration will be available from 6 June.

- An online survey (in EN, AR, FR, ES) allowing you to give your individual feedback on the proposed changes. Note this will be available from mid June.

If you wish to contact the revision managers directly, please write to chsrevision@chsalliance.org.
