The World Health Organization (WHO) is the world’s leading organization devoted to the improvement of the health of the world’s nearly seven billion people. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the World Health Organization is affiliated with the United Nations. Thousands of health experts around the world coordinate many programs to ensure that more people, and especially those living in dire poverty, have access to equitable, affordable care so that they can lead healthy, happy, and productive lives. The WHO’s endeavors have been tremendously successful, causing world life expectancy to steadily increase.

For more than sixty years, the diplomatic, benevolent World Health Organization has encouraged governments to collaborate to improve the health and wellbeing of billions of people. The poorest and most vulnerable members of global society have particularly benefited from the WHO’s research and implementation of its standards. The WHO has already saved millions of lives, and it continuously looks to the future. The WHO will undoubtedly educate more people and devise more cures so that no one suffers due to imbalances of medical knowledge and wealth.
