Board of Governors

26th Session of the Board of Governors, Prague, 1961


World Red Cross Medical and Nursing Foundation

The Board of Governors,

having heard the proposal made by the Australian Red Cross for a plan to provide increased medical services to countries in course of development,

considering the recommendations made by the XVth Session of the Nursing Advisory Committee and the IXth Session of the Health Advisory Committee,

approves in principle such a plan,

recognizes, however, that the existing League scholarship and study visit scheme as well as the League scheme for supplying material, should be designed precisely to provide the services envisaged, decides to strengthen the League scheme rather than to establish a separate Foundation”.
