Since the second edition of Dengue haemorrhagic fever: diagnosis, treatment, prevention and control was published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1997, the magnitude of the dengue problem has increased dramatically and has extended geographically to many previously unaffected areas. It was then, and remains today, the most important arthropod-borne viral disease of humans.

s of this writing , there have
been 169 laboratory-conﬁrmed human cases of H5N1 inﬂuenza – avian ﬂu–and 91 of those people have died. It is impossible to know whether this particular strain of ﬂu will mutate in such a way as to be easily transmissible between people and whether the virus will remain as lethal as it currently is. But if those things happen and a pandemic ensues, then, “in the best of circumstances,” the World Health Organization says, it would kill 2 million to 7.4 million people. In a worst-case scenario, more than 100 million would die, several times...
The World Health Organization and the United Nations Population Fund in collaboration with the
Key Centre for Women’s Health in Society, in the School of Population Health at the University of
Melbourne, Australia are pleased to present this joint publication of available evidence on the intricate
relationship between women’s mental and reproductive health. The review comprises the most recent
information on the ways in which mental health concerns intersect with women’s reproductive health.
The World Health Organization was established in
1948 as a specialized agency of the United Nations
serving as the directing and coordinating authority
for international health matters and public health.
One of WHO’s constitutional functions is to provide
objective and reliable information and advice
in the field of human health, a responsibility that it
fulfils in part through its publications programmes.
Through its publications, the Organization seeks to
support national health strategies and address the
most pressing public health concerns.
Mental health in scarce-resource settings has received considerable attention in the new millennium, in response to the growing evidence on the burden of mental disorders and their cost-effective treatments. The World Health Organization’s (WHO) World Health Report 2001, and The Lancet series on Global Mental Health in 2007, are two major initiatives that synthesised the evidence from these settings.
With each passing year, international organizations such as the United Nations
and the World Health Organization become more essential to serving the vital
requirements of states and state goals of security and well-being for their central
interests, especially their people. Organizations at one level serve the needs of
their members and at a higher level "harmonize the action of nations" in the
pursuit of common goals in the finely crafted words of Article 1 of the U.N.
Charter and constitution.

Mental health care is an essential but often
forgotten component of health care. Nurses
are core health-care providers and they need to be
able to contribute effectively to mental health care.
In reality, however, most low and middle income
countries do not have adequate numbers of nurses,
and the education and training of nurses in these
countries provide little of the knowledge and skills
necessary for good mental health care. The result
is poor or no mental health care for those who

The DAC Reference Document on Poverty and Health, jointly published by the OECD
and the World Health Organization (WHO), is the outcome of a joint effort by DAC
members working together through the DAC Network on Poverty Reduction. It builds on
bilateral agency experience and the work of leading organisations such as the WHO, the
World Bank and other United Nations agencies as well as non-governmental
This landmark World Health Organization publication aims to raise public and professional
awareness of the real burden of mental disorders and their costs in human,
social and economic terms. At the same time it intends to help dismantle many of those
barriers - particularly of stigma, discrimination and inadequate services - which prevent
many millions of people worldwide from receiving the treatment they need and deserve.
Mental health advocacy is a relatively new concept, developed with a view to reducing stigma and discrimination, and promoting the human rights of people with mental disorders. It consists of various actions aimed at changing the major structural and attitudinal barriers to achieving positive mental health outcomes in populations. This module draws attention to the importance of advocacy in mental health policy and service development. The roles of various mental health groups in advocacy are outlined.
On World Malaria Day in 2009, just over 600 days
remain until 31 December 2010, UN Secretary-
General Ban Ki-moon’s deadline for all endemic
countries to achieve universal coverage with
essential malaria control interventions.
presented here highlight major signs of progress
across Africa toward this goal.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has esti-
mated that between 190 and 330 million malaria
episodes occurred in 2006, resulting in nearly 1
million deaths. About 90 per cent of all malaria
deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa, most among
children under age ive (igure 1).
A yearly meeting of all the member countries in the World Health
Organization is this week in Geneva, Switzerland. Delegates from the one
hundred ninety-three countries discuss progress and set policy for the coming
year. The W.H.O., a United Nations agency, is sixty years old this year.
Nutritional deficiencies during pregnancy usually lead to intrauterine growth retardation,
which is one of the main causes of foetal and infant undernutrition in developing countries.
Every year, 30 million newborns, or 23% of 126 million births per year, are affected by
intrauterine growth retardation; by contrast, in developed countries the rate is only about 2%
(World Health Organization 2000a).
