Start of the 74th World Health Assembly
The WHA74 will take place virtually from 24 May to 1 June 2021, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
During the Seventy-fourth World Health Assembly, a series of Strategic Briefings are being held virtually. During these sessions, WHA delegates, experts from WHO, partner agencies, and civil society will discuss current priorities and next solutions on these vital issues for global public health.
The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of WHO. It is attended by delegations from all WHO Member States and focuses on a specific health agenda prepared by the Executive Board. The main functions of the World Health Assembly are to determine the policies of the Organization, appoint the Director-General, supervise financial policies, and review and approve the proposed programme budget. The Health Assembly is held annually in Geneva, Switzerland.
