American Samoa (USA)

In May 1953, American Samoa was assigned to the Western Pacific Region at the Sixth World Health Assembly ''without prejudice to any questions regarding its sovereignty'' as an area. The United States of America still remains responsible for American Samoa’s defence and foreign affairs and represents American Samoa at the Regional Committee.
The WHO Representative Office in the South Pacific covered American Samoa from 1956 to 1 October 1986 when the WHO Representative Office in Apia, Samoa was established to cover Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa and Tokelau.
