The World Health Organisation (WHO) is the principal United Nations’ specialised agency for global health.  Singapore works closely with the WHO on many important global health issues, such as strengthening healthcare systems and health development, promoting universal health coverage, enhancing pandemic preparedness and combating non-communicable diseases.


Singapore contributed to global health governance when it was elected as one of the 34 members of the Executive Board (EB) during the World Health Assembly in May 2006. The late Dr Balaji Sadasivan, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, represented Singapore during its three-year term on the Board from 2006 to 2009.
