This fonds, which is classified by country and health topic, contains the documents sent to WHO Headquarters by the Regional Offices. These documents include mission reports and contracts for consultants sent to countries by WHO in order to report, first of all to the Regional Office concerned, and then to Headquarters, about a specific health situation, such as plague or cholera, in the country concerned.
This fonds represents the work carried out in the field and covers the majority of the projects and initiatives carried out by WHO from its beginnings to the mid 1980s.
