About WHO

Collaborations and partnerships


66顺彩票appOne of our core functions is to direct and coordinate international health work by promoting collaboration, mobilizing partnerships and galvanizing efforts of different health actors to respond to national and global health challenges.

WHO partners with countries, United Nations system, international organisations, civil society, foundations, academia, research institutions – with people and communities to improve their health and support their development.

WHO’s work with the United Nations

WHO works closely with the United Nations system to support its Member States in achieving their national priorities and ensuring better health outcomes. WHO strives to increase coherence, effectiveness and efficiency in delivering results.

WHO’s engagement with non-State actors

Engagement is a key aspect of WHO’s role in global health governance and non-State actors play a critical role in supporting WHO’s work to fulfil its constitutional mandate.

Involvement of non-State actors in WHO’s governing bodies

In support of WHO’s constitutional function as the directing and coordinating authority on international health work, WHO makes arrangements with non-State actors to be involved in the work of its governing bodies. The modalities of this involvement are currently being reviewed.


Partnerships include various organizational structures, relationships and arrangements within and external to WHO to enhance collaboration to achieve better health outcomes.

WHO collaborating centres

WHO collaborating centres are institutions such as research institutes, parts of universities or academies, which are designated by the Director-General to carry out activities in support of the Organization's programmes.

WHO Expert Advisory Panels and Committees

This is a mechanism of collaboration with individuals experts from whom the Organization may obtain technical guidance and support. After appointment to an expert advisory panel, these experts can be invited to participate in an expert committee meeting to review and make technical recommendations on a subject of interest to the Organization.

UN Volunteers

UN Volunteers make important contributions to UN action in the pursuit of sustainable development. A Memorandum of Understanding provides the umbrella agreement between WHO and UN Volunteers for the deployment of UN Volunteers to WHO offices in the field.

Partners for emergencies

The world is dealing with emergencies of unprecedented scale. 130 million people need humanitarian assistance worldwide. No organization can do it alone. WHO works on health emergencies of all kinds ranging from disease outbreaks to conflicts to natural disasters.
