WHO is the lead agency for health within the United Nations system. We coordinate the international health response to emergencies and humanitarian crises whenever a country needs assistance.

But we cannot do this work without our partners - other UN agencies, nongovernmental organizations and donors – who help us deliver health services in even the most difficult situations.

This photo gallery shows how WHO is working with partners in recent and ongoing emergencies such as famine, Ebola outbreaks, Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, yellow fever in Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the earthquake in Ecuador.
