Its main areas of work include health systems, communicable and noncommunicable diseases and the coordination of responses to health emergencies. In OxIMUN, this committee will run as a simulation of the annual World Health Assembly (WHA) which convenes delegations of WHO Member States.
Topic 1: Global Health in the Post-Antibiotic Era
