The World Health Organisation is the United Nation’s specialised agency handling health matters. Established in 1948, the WHO's objective, as set out in its constitution, is the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health. Health is defined in the WHO's constitution as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The objectives of the WHO's relations with NGOs are to promote the policies, strategies and activities of the WHO.
