World Health Organization (WHO)
The World Health Organization (WHO), founded in 1948, is an agency of the United Nations (UN) specializing in public health. It purports to fight infectious diseases and promote general health. Despite the vast scope and impact of the WHO, it has numerous critics who maintain the agency is incompetent, bureaucratic and a Trojan Horse for the pharmaceutical industry. The WHO emphasizes both pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines, but makes little critical analysis of either available.
