WHO in the Western Pacific

Leading the way to a healthier future

The World Health Organization in the Western Pacific Region

For more than six decades WHO has been the leading authority on public health in the Western Pacific Region and has helped the Region’s countries and areas mount effective responses to health threats that have saved millions of lives and freed millions more from debilitating diseases.

Carrying on that work today, staff at the WHO Regional Office in Manila, Philippines, and 15 country offices work hand-in-hand with 37 countries and areas, health authorities, partners and other stakeholders to provide the support, collaboration and guidance needed to bring better health to 1.8 billion people in the Region.
