WHo

The World Health Organization's mission is to promote international well-being through universal coverage, response to health emergencies, and health support for vulnerable communities. The WHO works to address social determinants of health, identify and manage health risks and emergencies, and develop infrastructure for the improvement of sustainable and accessible public health systems and services.

In this committee, delegates will develop emergency policy for future public health crises, using the COVID-19 pandemic as a case study, and tackle issues of health infrastructure in urban areas, particularly among marginalized communities.
