The Global Priorities are a group of focus areas and overarching concepts in which the internal and external work in IFMSA Standing Committees will be focused on. This will help us to have a streamlined and a strategic approach towards our deliveries on a global level, and act as a guidance to ease up our daily collaboration between the different working groups in IFMSA.
IFMSA started working with this system in August Meeting 2018, by adopting the first proposal for Global Priorities for the term 2018/2019. Furthermore, the Global Priorities were officially introduced to our bylaws in March Meeting 2019, through a set of bylaws which regulates their proposal, adoption and monitoring. IFMSA Executive Board will propose the Global Priorities in the August Meeting, and any NMO and Official may advise the Executive Board of what Global Priorities shall be proposed. Each year, a consultation process is held prior to creating the proposal in all Standing Committees to determine which Global Priorities shall be proposed for the upcoming term, and IFMSA members, Officials, and even partners participate in this consultation process.
