The Interacademy Medical Panel (IAMP)
The InterAcademy Medical Panel (IAMP) is a network of the world's national medical academies and academies of science and engineering with medical sections that is committed to improving health world-wide. The goals of the IAMP are; to strengthen the capacity of academies to provide evidence based advice to governments on health and science policy; to support the creation of new academies; to support the creation of projects by member academies to strengthen research and higher education in their countries; and to issue consensus statements on matters of importance to global health. The IAMP secretariat is hosted by The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), in Trieste, Italy.
