    About WHO

    • World Health Organization
      WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.
    • History of WHO
      When diplomats met to form the United Nations in 1945, one of the things they discussed was setting up a global health organization.
      WHO’s Constitution came into force on 7 April 1948 – a date we now celebrate every year as World Health Day.
