|Basic Malaria Microscopy (part I and II) (WHO - OMS, 1991, 72 p.)|
The World Health Organization was established In 1948 as a specialized agency of the United Nations serving as the directing and coordinating authority for international health matters and public health. One of WHOS constitutional functions is to provide objective and reliable information and advice in the field of human health, a responsibility that it fulfils in part through its extensive programme of publications.
The Organization seeks through its publications to support national health strategies and address the most pressing public health concerns of populations around the world, To respond to the needs of Member States at all levels of development, WHO publishes practical manuals, handbooks and training material for specific categories of health workers; internationally applicable guidelines and standards; reviews and analyses of health policies, programmes and research: and state-of-the-art consensus reports that offer technical advice and recommendations for decision-makers. These books are closely tied to the Organizations priority activities, encompassing disease prevention and control, the development of equitable health systems based on primary health care, and health promotion for individuals and communities. Progress towards better health for all also demands the global dissemination and exchange of information that draws on the knowledge and experience of all WHOS Member countries and the collaboration of world leaders in public health and the biomedical sciences.
To ensure the widest possible availability of authoritative information and guidance on health matters, WHO secures the broad international distribution of its publications and encourages their translation and adaptation. By helping to promote and protect health and prevent and control disease throughout the world, WHOS books contribute to achieving the Organizations principal objective - the attainment by all people of the highest possible level of health.
