The WHO archives have the privilege of holding special collections, besides the traditional paper documents. They include five main collections, which are described under the following links.
WHO has always had close links with stamp collecting. Since it was set up, numerous stamps have been issued in order to put messages across to the population.
WHO has received and issued medals and coins throughout its history. They are issued to reward good deeds and to commemorate significant achievements.
The archives keep sound recordings of some major events in the history of WHO including the New York Conference in 1946.
Oral History project is endeavouring to create and present the institution's oral history by interviewing retired staff members who played an important role in WHO. These interviews supplement the more formal written sources.
