In honor of the World Health Organization and the many health organizations, we work closely with, Happy World Health Day!
The World Health Organization was founded in 1948 to connect nations and people to “promote health, keep the world safe and serve the vulnerable—so everyone, everywhere can attain the highest level of health.” The WHO directs and coordinates the world’s response to health emergencies.
The past two years have shown us the importance of emergency response. The WHO has established how they support these efforts by:
- Preparing for emergencies by identifying, mitigating, and managing risks.
- Preventing emergencies and supporting the development of tools necessary during outbreaks.
- Detecting and responding to acute health emergencies.
- Supporting the delivery of essential health services in fragile settings.
When a health issue has a universal effect, the WHO will most likely be involved and as health companies focus on research and innovation, they will continue to be involved. The Who collaborates with over 800 institutions in over 80 countries and works in areas such as nursing, occupational health, communicable diseases, nutrition, mental health, chronic diseases, and health technologies.
We continue to work closely with our partners in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and health care industries to promote health and wellness for all.
