NHSMUN 2020 Country Matrix

InstructionsClick to hide

The table below indicates which countries are represented in each of the NHSMUN 2020 committees. This will help you determine which country/committee preferences you choose to submit during registration. Each row represents a distinct country, and each column represents a committee. If there is a check mark in the cell, it means that the country is represented in that particular committee.

Tab 1, Committees, shows the countries represented on each of the indicated NHSMUN 2020 committees.

  • Size (# Del) Column: The size column indicates the minimum and maximum number of delegates who can fit within that country's size. Your delegation size should fall between these two numbers, and as a general rule, should be near the higher number. For example, a country with a size of 10-18 can accommodate between 10-18 students. In many cases, schools with larger groups of students will need to represent two or more countries.
  • Single or Double Delegation: Next to each committee abbreviation in the top row, you will see a number in parentheses, which indicates the number of delegates who may represent a country in that committee (e.g. (2) indicates double delegation committees). While it is often advisable that you put the maximum number of delegates in each committee, it is not absolutely required that you do so.
  • Sorting: Each column (including the size column) can be sorted by clicking on the first row. This is useful if you want to see which countries are represented in one specific committee, or if you want to sort by size.
  • Search: The search box (above and to the right of the header row) allows you to filter the rows by your search term. For example, entering "Zimbabwe" will search the table for rows including the term Zimbabwe. You can also search for numbers as well. Searching "18," for example, will return all countries that have a maximum size of 18 delegates.

Tab 2, Specialized Agencies, displays the countries or roles represented on the NHSMUN 2020 specialized agencies. Assignments on the specialized agencies are optional and are assigned separately from those on the committees from tab 1. As such, specialized agencies are not included in the size count of the countries on that tab. If you request placement on a specialized agency, please take this into account when considering the maximum and minimum sizes of your preferred countries. For example, if you have 21 students in your delegation and want to request one seat on a single-delegate specialized agency, you could then request a country with 20 seats on the standard committee tab (one fewer than 21).
