The World Health Organization is 70 years old on 7 April. But is it still in good shape to tackle the huge inequalities in treatment across the world?
On this World Health Day, 7 April, the World Health Organization marks its 70th anniversary.
It has notched up some notable achievements such as the efforts to eradicate diseases like smallpox, a convention on tobacco control and a framework to prevent flu pandemics. Alongside this runs coordinating work on global standards and guidelines for essential drugs, diagnosis, treatment and health workers.
