The World Health Organization (WHO) is the leading authority on health information/matters and health research within the United Nations system. The WHO webpage provides access to information, research and statistics on global health issues and topics.
The report combines an expert assessment of global health, including statistics relating to all countries, with a focus on a specific subject. The main purpose of the report is to provide countries, donor agencies, international organizations and others with the information they need to help them make policy and funding decisions.
The report is also offered to a wider audience, from universities, teaching hospitals and schools, to journalists and the public at large - anyone, in fact, with a professional or personal interest in international health issues.
