Unique

We are an independent foundation, with the freedom to inspire change for better health. Our work supports the World Health Organization (WHO) and wider health systems.

Unique

Our vision

The WHO Foundation shares WHO’s vision of a world where health knows no bounds.

But the truth is that we live in an unequal world. Access to healthcare is a lottery, based on where we are born, grow, and live, and a whole range of social factors.

Our mission

To ignite private funding and cultivate dynamic partnerships, driving WHO’s mission, championing health, and protecting the vulnerable. We express that mission by simply asking everyone to “Share the Health”.

We bring the right people to the table to help fast-track health projects worldwide – helping people in need, wherever they are.
