World Health Organization (WHO)

The World Health Assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization (WHO), at its forty-fifth annual session (Geneva, 4-14 May 1992), reviewed a second evaluation of implementation of the global strategy for health for all by the year 2000 and adopted resolutions on: strengthening nursing and midwifery; disability prevention and rehabilitation; immunization and vaccine quality; health and environment; and national strategies for overcoming micronutrient malnutrition. The Assembly urged member States to improve the health of the most vulnerable population groups, analyse the health impact of development projects, and ensure that health protection was an integral part of sustainable development policies. It endorsed an updated and expanded global strategy for combating the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), as well as guidelines for implementing the WHO Certification Scheme on the Quality of Pharmaceutical Products moving in International Commerce. Technical discussions focused on women, health and development and the Assembly requested the WHO Director-General to establish a global commission on women’s health.
