Humanitarian Health Action

Donor centre

Donor contributions make it possible for WHO to provide technical assistance, medical supplies and coordination services during humanitarian emergencies. As the lead agency of the Health Cluster, WHO works with UN agencies, NGOs and other partners to address the needs of people in crisis in a comprehensive and coordinated manner. To continue our work and to increase our capacity, funding to both WHO's 'Five Year Plan to Strengthen WHO's Capacity for Humanitarian Health Action' and for the 'Consolidated Appeal' is vital.
