WHO

Staff of the Country Office on its 15th anniversary in 2010

The role of a WHO/Europe country office is to respond to requests from the host country to support policy-making for sustainable health development, taking a holistic health-system approach. This includes providing guidance, building up local relationships to implement technical cooperation, making standards and agreements, and ensuring that public health measures are coordinated and in place during crises.

The WHO Country Office, Armenia was established in 1994  in Yerevan to support implementation of WHO’s work in the country.

The Office is the focal point for WHO activities in Armenia. The country team consists of eight people, including professional staff working on health systems, communicable diseases, and noncommunicable diseases. 

The priorities for the Country Office are set out in the biennial collaborative agreement between WHO/Europe and the host country. The Office implements the agreement in close collaboration with national institutions and international partner agencies.
