World Health Organization (WHO)
The World Health Organization is a specialized agency within the United Nations that concerns itself with international public health. As per its constitution formed in 1948, the committee’s main goal is “the attainment of all people of the highest possible level of health.” The World Health Organization works every day of the year to advance the standards of all areas of public health upheld by the 194 member nations of the U.N. The committee tackles all aspects of public health including (but not limited to): active aid provision to those areas that need it most, scientific research into combatting detrimental diseases, ensuring access to both healthcare and any necessary sanitary products, and addressing a mutual deterioration among both global citizens and the environment. The World Health Organization is built of a global team, with offices throughout the world, that does not believe in limits. The committee will continue to work until the best standards of health are practiced by every human being; there is constant improvement and progression in the medical and public health fields to ensure the world is at its healthiest to tackle whatever infection threatens it.
