In 2001 the World Health Organization (WHO) continued to implement its corporate strategy by addressing the burden of ill-health among poor populations; tracking and assessing risks to health and helping societies take action to reduce them; improving the performance of health systems and encouraging national policies that promoted health. The strategy also included WHO’s core functions of eradicating epidemics and other diseases, research, the establishment of international conventions and regulations, partnership-building, innovation and the development and monitoring of norms and standards.
