This booklet tells the story of the WHO Regional Office for Europe from its beginnings to its state in 2010. A way of keeping alive and handing on the history of this Office and its vital work, it covers five WHO regional directors for Europe and thousands of dedicated staff, not to mention the hundreds of programmes and policies they helped to create and carry out. An earlier book covered the first 40 years in detail; this booklet focuses more on the last 20 years. It is a story of how the Regional Office has spent the past 60 years working to help improve the health of the people in the vast area that it serves.
