World Health Organization
Since its establishment in 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been working with 193 member states to bring awareness to causes of pressing health issues and to fight communicable diseases. WHO strives to fulfill its objectives through the six-point agenda: (1) promoting development; (2) fostering health security; (3) strengthening health systems; (4) harnessing research, information and evidence; (5) enhancing partnerships; and (6) improving performance.
WHO is designed for intermediate delegates. Though position papers are not required, they are recommended to ensure delegates feel prepared and comfortable throughout the conference. Please submit all papers to your committee director.

She looks forward to meeting you all in October and wishes you the best of luck during your weekend at VYMUN!
Will White is a grade 11 student at West Point Grey Academy. He has been an avid MUNer since grade 8, where his love for the sport of debate and MUN started.

But, as I listened quietly to the various sessions, I realized just how amazing it was to have access to such an amazing community!” Since, he has served as a staff member for two years, and as a delegate at a plethora of conferences. Some of his hobbies include Mountain Biking, Model UN, and Basketball. He will be serving as the WHO Chair, and will be waiting excitedly for all delegates at VYMUN 2022!
