世界卫生组织 World Health Organization
总部： Geneva, Switzerland
We are the directing and coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations’ system.
We do this by:
providing leadership on matters critical to health and engaging in partnerships where joint action is needed;
shaping the research agenda and stimulating the generation, translation and dissemination of valuable knowledge;
setting norms and standards and promoting and monitoring their implementation;
articulating ethical and evidence-based policy options;
providing technical support, catalysing change, and building sustainable institutional capacity; and
monitoring the health situation and assessing health trends.
WHO’s Constitution came into force on 7 April 1948 – a date we now celebrate every year as World Health Day. Discover more about WHO history through archives, seminars, public health posters and campaigns.
More than 7000 people from more than 150 countries work for the Organization in over 150 WHO country offices, 6 regional offices, at the Global Service Centre in Malaysia and at the headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
WHO remains firmly committed to the principles set out in the preamble to the Constitution
