WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) was founded on April 7th as a specialized agency of the United Nations with its headquarters in Geneva. 194 countries are members of WHO, which coordinates international public health and global health issues on behalf of the United Nations. The WHO is tasked with developing and defining globally applicable norms and standards for areas relating to health, as well as unifying these and implementing them across the world. Important fields of action include the global coordination of national and international activities against communicable diseases such as AIDS, malaria, SARS and influenza, the initiation of global vaccination programs and activities against health risk factors such as smoking or being overweight.

The WHO employs more than 7,000 staff and is divided into 6 regions, each of which is managed by a Regional Office. The highest decision-making body of the World Health Organization is the World Health Assembly (WHA), which meets every year in Geneva.
