WHO sure hit the headlines when they released their statement on processed and red meats.

So who is WHO?  WHO is the acronym for the World Health Association.

Created on April 7, 1948, it is represented by over 7,000 folks.

These representatives are based in 150 different offices.

Their headquarters is in Geneva, but they have 6 regional offices as well.

Their main goal is to “direct and coordinate international health.”

They work within the mainframe of the United Nations’ system.

How do they do this? As countries work to meet their individual health objectives, WHO offers support.

They  look at many aspects of a country’s health needs, including disease and various ways to promote health.
