WHO Country Office
The role of a WHO 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, Lithuania was established in May 1994 in Vilnius. The Office is the focal point for WHO activities in Lithuania. The country team consists of two people.
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.
