Historical Dictionary of the World Health Organization by Kelley Lee

The World Health Organization encourages global cooperation in the effort to improve the health and welfare of human beings. Though there remains a consensus among world health professionals about the expertise and necessity of the World Health Organization, like many other international organizations, the WHO faces criticism and budget limitations. Still, historically significant campaigns such as the eradication of smallpox and the current controversy surrounding the WHO's involvement in AIDS education and prevention have increased the importance of detailed information concerning the organization.

Compiled with the assistance of past and present WHO staff, medical historians, and health professionals, this work brings together a broad range of data on the World Health Organization. The dictionary covers the key offices, programs, events, and individuals of the WHO from its creation to present calls for reform. An introduction provides a brief history of WHO as the world's first truly global health organization. A chronology of key events, a comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources, and extensive appendixes of basic documents and organizational structures further complement the work.
