WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system.

It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.

In the 21st century, health is a shared responsibility, involving equitable access to essential care and collective defense against transnational threats.

To make this statement: "The World Health Organization has stated repeatedly that transportation restrictions impede the ability to respond to the outbreak with necessary personnel and supplies, and state that travel restrictions and closure of borders at points of entry are not recommended." Allowing anyone to make leisure visits to infected areas is not working. If personnel is sent, they shouldn't be able to leave till it's over. So much for science over religion if WHO thinks like that.

The World Health Organization is responsible for keeping public safety from disease and keeping the public healthy. However because they have so much to handle, they have a slower response towards disease outbreaks.

Today is the International Day of Older Persons. Populations are getting older. With advances in medicine helping more people to live longer lives, the number of people over the age of 60 is expected to double by 2050 and will require radical societal change for the #YearsAhead

Each and every refugee and migrant must have full, uninterrupted access to a hospitable environment and, when needed, to high-quality health care, without discrimination on the basis of gender, age, religion, nationality or race. WHO supports policies to provide health care services irrespective of refugees' or migrants' legal status.
In this Q&A, you can find answers to the most common questions on #refugees ' and #migrants ' health needs. The most frequent health problems of newly arrived migrants include accidental injuries, hypothermia, burns, cardiovascular events, pregnancy and delivery-related complications, diabetes and hypertension:

The world is on the verge of an effective ‪#‎Ebola‬ vaccine. Results from an interim analysis of the ‪#‎Guinea‬ Phase III efficacy vaccine trial show that the vaccine VSV-EBOV is highly effective against Ebola. While the vaccine up to now shows 100% efficacy in individuals, more conclusive evidence is needed and trials will continue. This is an extremely promising development. This record-breaking work marks a turning point in the history of health research and development:

World #Breastfeeding  Week is celebrated every year from 1 to 7 August. This year, WHO joins forces with the +International Labour Organization to spread the word about Breastfeeding and Work. Let’s make it work!
