hi welcome to AVM VBS today's topic is WH o or World Health Organization in this video we will discuss the main topic in the chapter international health in the pop textbook of Community Medicine now to understand the origins of WH o we need to first understand the concept of quarantine in the 14th century Europe people were terrified of play so ships suspected of harboring infection we're detained at Port for a period of 40 days before they could enter the city the idea was that with the passage of time the underlying infection would either manifest into full-blown disease or die out thus protecting the citizens this was called quarantine but there was no uniformity in the quarantine measures in the different parts of the world so in 1851 and international sanitary conference was convened at Paris to bring about some orders and uniformity but it failed in 1902 a pan-american sanitary bureau was set up to bring uniformity in the quarantine measures in the American state it was the world's first international health agency it was later renamed Pan American Health Organization in 1958 its headquarters is in Washington DC next after the first world war the health wing of the League of Nations was set up in 1923 then there was the Second World War following which the United Nation 4 set up the w-h-o was one of the many parts of the United Nations so in April 1945 a conference was held in San Francisco in which Brazil and China proposed that an international Health Organization should be established so on 7th April 1948 the w-h-o formally came into existence and this day is celebrated as world's healthy a world has days he is chosen every year to focus attention on a specific aspects of public health for that year for example in 2015 it was food safety in
