About Cherg

CHERG is a group of technical experts that is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. While external to the UN system, CHERG was convened to assist WHO and UNICEF with the goal of providing global technical leadership in the development and improvement of epidemiologic estimates for children under age five. CHERG is guided by a small group of “core” members from the institutions listed below, with larger ad hoc working groups addressing specific issues.
