About WHO (World Health Organization)

We are the directing and coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations’ system.

We do this by:

  • 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.

Leadership priorities

For each 6-year programme of work priority areas are identified where our leadership is most needed.
