About WHO


We are building a better, healthier future for people all over the world.

Working with 194 Member States, across six regions, and from more than 150 offices, WHO staff are united in a shared commitment to achieve better health for everyone, everywhere.

Together we strive to combat diseases – communicable diseases like influenza and HIV, and noncommunicable diseases like cancer and heart disease.

We help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age. We ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink – and the medicines and vaccines they need.

Our primary role is to direct and coordinate international health within the United Nations system.

Our main areas of work are health systems; health through the life-course; noncommunicable and communicable diseases; preparedness, surveillance and response; and corporate services.




Work at WHO


We are looking for talented and passionate people to work for health. 

WHO is committed to achieving workforce diversity, aiming to achieve a broad representation of nationals of our member countries. Particular attention is paid to candidates from developing countries and gender balance. Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis. All posts are filled in accordance with WHOs competency model.

There are two key categories of staff at WHO: professional (P) or directors (D) who are internationally recruited and general (G) or national professional (NPO) staff who are recruited locally for both fixed or short-term positions. We also run internship and opportunities for junior professional officers (JPOs).

We offer a dynamic and international work environment with a multi-cultural workforce, opportunities for professional development and a competitive remuneration package. At WHO we have a mobility policy to give staff the opportunity to gain experience in different parts of the world.
