The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is responsible for protecting global public health. Its 194 Member States are often tasked with investigating and responding to outbreaks and emergencies. Some topics that could be discussed by the WHO include communicable diseases, sexual and reproductive health, ageing, nutrition, and substance abuse. The WHO will be made up of delegates with an interest in both Model United Nations procedure and global health-related issues, and will allow them to debate at a high level the most effective ways of responding to such issues.
