In carrying out its work, the panel will undertake a wide range of consultations, including with representatives from the affected countries and communities, the UN system, multilateral and bilateral financial institutions and regional development banks, NGOs, countries supporting the response effort, other member states, health care providers, academic and research institutions, the private sector, and other experts.

The panel will hold its first meeting in early May and is expected to submit its final report by the end of the year to Ban, who will make the report available to the General Assembly, and undertake further action as appropriate.
