The "Records and Archives" service, also known as the "Registry" in the 1950s, processed a growing volume of documents as WHO and its public health programmes grew in importance.

Sub-fonds 3 faithfully reflects this growth and, as the contents of the inventory show, contains documents from the historic archives relating to these programmes.
