Your review should cover such points as the scientific interest of the project, the ability of the investigator, the adequacy and soundness of the planning, of the techniques to be employed and of the resources available, the reasonableness of the costs and the extent to which, in your opinion, the project merits WHO's support. I must emphasize that this matter is confidential and request you to return to us with your reply the attached application form. If you are able to assist us in this way, a token payment of $25.00 to cover any expenses incurred will be made to you. I should be grateful to you for your early reply.
