World Health Organisation (WHO)
The WHO is building a better, healthier future for people all over the world. Working with 194 Member States, across six regions, and from more than 150 offices, WHO staff are united in a shared commitment to achieve better health for everyone, everywhere.
Together they strive to combat diseases – communicable diseases like influenza and HIV, and non-communicable diseases like cancer and heart disease. They help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age and ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink and the medicines and vaccines they need.
