The United States of America and the World Health Organization work together on global health challenges to make the world a safer and healthier place.
WHO is grateful to the United States for its leadership in global health, including health security, polio, primary health care and maternal child health. When people are healthy, they can learn, work and support themselves and their families. Good health leads to economic prosperity, which in turn promotes a path to self-reliance and resilience.
By partnering with WHO, the United States helps keep polio at bay and brings the goal of eradicating the disease closer to realization. By focusing on diseases such as TB, Malaria and HIV the United States protects the world's most vulnerable populations affected by these diseases.
For decades the United States has been a committed partner in global health, a pillar for economic prosperity. WHO recognizes and thanks the American people for their generosity.
