The European Rural and Isolated Practitioners Association

International Advisory Board

Each country, through its national association membership of WONCA Europe, is entitled to nominate a rural representative to become their respective national delegate on the International Advisory Board (IAB).  The IAB advises and informs the Executive Committee on all aspects of rural primary care across Europe. The IAB runs a workshop to give a pan Europeanan perspective on key rural health issues at WONCA Europe conferences and the EURIPA Annual Rural Health Forum; you can download the presentation at Krakow and Israel in 2018.

A set of rules has been established to set out how the IAB works, what is expected of the members of the IAB and also what support they can expect to receive from EURIPA. 

 The Executive Committee is also entitled to nominate national and internationally recognised rural experts as additional delegates of the IAB but it also ensures that membership of the IAB achieves a balance between national representatives and “experts”.

The delegates of the International Advisory Board share the same electoral period of 3 years as the Executive Committee. IAB members can be re-elected with the support of their national association/college or the Executive Committee for a further 3 years.  The EURIPA Executive Committee appoints the Chair of the IAB.  The guidelines explaining how the IAB works can be viewed here.

There are currently some vacancies on the IAB.  If you are interested in becoming involved pleased contact the Chair of the IAB or the Executive Secretary.  The current membership  includes:
