World Health Assembly
The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of the World Health Organization. It is tasked with reviewing policies and current actions of the Organisation, determining new policies and ruling about all financial matters within the WHO.
The World Health Organization was founded in 1948 to help combat disease and promote overall health, especially in regions vulnerable to health emergencies and communicable diseases. It consists of over 7000 employees who are active in over 150 countries. The WHO is governed by the Executive Board, which consists of 30 member state delegations and creates new resolutions.
The World Health Assembly, consisting of 194 member states, votes on and ammends the resolutions put forth by the Board and has control of ongoing missions and initiatives.
The WHO puts in place infrastructure to make medical facilities and services available to rural or poor regions, provides medication and fresh water access in third world countries and helps with the prevention and control of health emergencies around the world. A recent initiative of the WHO is amongst others the vaccination of children in Yemen against measles, with 11 million children already successfully vaccinated.
