World Health Organization to establish local office in Athens

An agreement for the establishment of a World Health Organization office in Athens was signed on Wednesday in Geneva between the general secretary of Public Health Ioannis Baskozos and WHO’s Regional Director for Europe, Dr. Zsuzsanna Jakab.

“WHO’s know-how in the development and implementation of public health policies and universal coverage policies with emphasis on prevention and health education, are important factors in planning, legislating and implementing health policies in our country,” the health ministry said in a press release.
