World Health Organisation (WHO).

The World Health Organisation is a specialised agency of the United Nations, covering the remit of international public health. Since its establishment in 1948, the WHO has been at the forefront of many great advances in this field, playing a leading role in the eradication of smallpox. More recently, its priorities have been orientated around other communicable diseases (most notably HIV/AIDS, Ebola, malaria, and tuberculosis), reproductive health, and nutrition; though the agency has interests in many areas.
