This presentation will encompass employment policies and practices of the World Bank, as they relate to work in implementing the health, nutrition and population strategy of the Bank. The presentation will describe different employment categories and their associated requirements, and discuss the realities of work life in health, nutrition and population employment in the World Bank. It will address the institution's changing skill needs. Practical tips and prior experience requirements will be featured. Beyond the formalities of employment policies and procedures, and work life, the presentation will review trends, changes, and dynamics. The presentation will take into account results of work currently under way to redefine the Bank's health, nutrition and population strategy, and place World Bank employment in the larger context of the changing institutional architecture of development assistance for health.
