About Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is responsible for global public health. It was established on April 7, 1948, with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

The WHO’s primary goal is to promote health, keep the world safe, and serve the vulnerable by coordinating international efforts to address health issues, including disease outbreaks, emergencies, and pandemics. It also sets global health standards, develops policies, and monitors and assesses health trends and risks worldwide.

The organization works with governments and partners worldwide to help countries build and maintain strong health systems, improve access to essential health services, and promote health equity. The WHO focuses on a range of health issues, including infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental health, environmental health, and health systems strengthening.

The WHO is governed by the World Health Assembly, which is composed of representatives from its 194 member states. The organization is led by the Director-General, currently, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who is responsible for providing leadership and direction to the WHO’s activities.

About UN Jobs in Syria-Procurement Officer

The protracted crisis in Syria that began in 2011 has had a devastating impact on the country’s population, destroyed much of the infrastructure (including medical facilities), destroyed the economy, killed a great number of people, and made it harder for the country to provide basic social services. The basic blocks of the Syrian health system have been severely damaged by the country’s ten-year civil war, which means WHO needs to invest to restart and repair its essential operations. On the one hand, MoH must support the new roles, such as global health vision, regulation, coordination, reporting on obligations to international organizations, etc.

On the other hand, it must respond to governorates’ requests for assistance in fortifying their frail healthcare infrastructure during times of emergency. The numerous strategic aims and plans (global, regional, and national), as well as the goals of the United Nations Development Aid Framework, must therefore be brought into harmony and alignment by WHO (UNDAF). To improve organizational effectiveness and ensure WHO relevance at the national level, this synergy and alignment will be crucial.
