World Health Organization: Who is who?
“More than 7000 people from more than 150 countries work for the Organization in 150 WHO offices in countries, territories and areas, six regional offices, at the Global Service Centre in Malaysia and at the headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.” Unfortunately the WHO website does not allow easy access to the headquarters, its structures, staff and contacts for enquires. So take your time!

WHO’s engagement with non-State actors
“The Sixty-ninth session of the World Health Assembly has adopted the WHO Framework of Engagement with Non-State Actors (FENSA). The Framework endeavours to strengthen WHO engagement with non-Sate actors (NGOs, private sector entities, philanthropic foundations, and academic institutions) while protecting its work from potential risks such as reputational risks, conflicts of interest, and undue influence from external actors.” (source: WHO)
