71st World Health Assembly
May 21 - May 26
The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of WHO. It is attended by delegations from all WHO Member States and focuses on a specific health agenda prepared by the Executive Board. The main functions of the World Health Assembly are to determine the policies of the Organization, supervise financial policies, and review and approve the proposed programme budget.
This year’s Health Assembly takes place on 21–26 May 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland. In advance of the Third High-Level Meeting on NCDs (scheduled to take place in New York in September 2018), this year’s WHA will have a strong NCD focus.
