Hide / Show Abstract

The World Health Organization (WHO), established in 1948, continued in 1990 to serve as the directing and co-ordinating authority on international health. WHO focused on disease prevention and control; promoting primary health care and the health of specific populations; addressing health issues related to environment and development; and encouraging implementation of a global strategy of health for all. The World Health Assembly, the governing body of WHO, at its forty-third session Geneva, 7-17 May), focused on the negative effects of the worsening economic situation in many countries on the health of populations.
