About Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) responsible for global public health. It was established in 1948 and has its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

The WHO’s primary objective is to ensure that people around the world attain the highest possible level of health. To achieve this, it provides leadership and sets norms and standards for health, conducts research, provides technical assistance and support to countries, and coordinates international health programs.

Some of the key areas of work for the WHO include:

  • Communicable diseases: The WHO works to prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
  • Noncommunicable diseases: The WHO focuses on preventing and controlling noncommunicable diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
  • Health systems: The WHO works to strengthen health systems, including improving access to health services, training health workers, and improving the availability of medicines and medical technologies.
  • Emergency response: The WHO responds to global health emergencies, such as disease outbreaks and natural disasters.

The WHO is governed by its member states, which meet every year at the World Health Assembly. The organization has over 150 country offices around the world and works closely with other UN agencies, as well as with governments, non-governmental organizations, and other partners.
