WHO also strives to increase public health standards. WHO is also responsible for the World Health Report, a leading publication relating to global health.

TOPIC:
COVID-19 vaccine distribution in developing countries

The distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in developing countries is crucial to protecting lives, building human capital, and stimulating economic recovery. The current crisis is deepening inequalities throughout the world and, without access to vaccines, the gap will widen further. Access to vaccines could prevent the death of thousands of people and limit the spread of COVID-19 globally.
