WHO

The creation of the World Health Organisation committee had a long process of development in order to become part of the United Nations. After an assembly held in San Francisco, where China and Brazil proposed a system that would focus on human health, it underwent a series of presentations, proposals, and then acceptance by the nations, and was officially recognised on April 7, 1948. The committee’s objective is for all individuals to obtain the greatest possible degree of healthcare. The WHO Mission defines health as a state of whole physical, mental, and social well-being, not only the lack of sickness or disability. The organization performs a variety of activities in order to achieve its principal goal.

7000 people, from over 150 countries work in the 150 offices of the organization. The headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland, and there are six regional offices in the world. “In addition to medical doctors, public health specialists, scientists and epidemiologists, WHO staff include people trained to manage administrative, financial, and information systems, as well as experts in the fields of health statistics, economics, and emergency relief.” - WHO
