WHO statement
3 May 2016

WHO works actively with media around the world and believes that the role of the world's media in disseminating information and examining the actions of institutions is fundamental.

WHO webcasts Governing Bodies meetings, such as the upcoming World Health Assembly, May 23 –28, 2016, letting the press and the general public on site and remotely have access to decision-making at WHO.

We are continuously striving to demonstrate and implement greater transparency for the general public and decision-makers, and the world’s media is a key partner in ensuring that WHO remains the most trusted and authoritative source of health information in the world.
