Christian McMillen talked about the origin of the World Health Organization and its role throughout history.




The World Health Organization was started after World War II as an endeavor to coordinate efforts to combat infectious diseases as they spread around the world. Over the decades, other organizations have stepped into this role as well. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic but was also criticized for its response. President Trump withdrew support from WHO, but c renewed support his first day in office. In this lesson, students investigate the role of the organization and decide if they think the United States should support WHO.
