Creation of the WHO Foundation

WHO welcomes the creation of the WHO Foundation, an independent grant-making entity headquartered in Geneva, that will support our efforts to address the most pressing global health challenges.

The WHO Foundation will provide funds to WHO & partners to deliver on the Organization’s “triple billion” goals:

– protect 1 billion people from health emergencies
– extend universal health coverage to 1 billion people
– assure healthy lives & wellbeing to 1 billion people by 2023

To help broaden WHO’s donor base and achieve more sustainable/predictable funding, the Foundation will facilitate contributions to WHO & trusted partners from:
– general public
– individual major donors
– corporate partners
