World Health Organization

The World Health Organization was created in 1948 in order to coordinate for and solve the most pressing health issues facing the world. This organization has had incredible results, including the elimination of smallpox in 1980. With the spread of COVID-19, the world has been reminded that health is a global issue, emphasizing the need for a global approach to medicine. Through this lens, this committee will address the rising rates of vaccine hesitancy, which threaten the huge strides made against childhood mortality, and find solutions to building and providing healthcare and infrastructure in conflict-torn regions. Through these discussions, this committee hopes to enhance understanding and focus on health issues facing the world.
