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.
