World Health Organization
The World Health Organization is a specialized agency of the United Nations that was established in 1948 with the aim of researching and mitigating diseases and health conditions throughout member states. In the past, it has led the charge to stop the spread of smallpox, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis. As of 2018, it has also focused on environmental health changes, and has continued its research into newer noncommunicable diseases.
