In support of its main objective, the Organization has a wide range of functions, including:
  • Act as the directing and co-ordinating authority on international health work
  • Promote technical co-operation
  • Assist Governments, upon request, in strengthening health services
  • Furnish appropriate technical assistance and, in emergencies, necessary aid, upon the request or acceptance of Governments
  • Stimulate and advance work on the prevention and control of epidemic, endemic and other diseases
  • Promote, in co-operation with other specialized agencies where necessary, the improvement of nutrition, housing, sanitation, recreation, economic or working conditions and other aspects of environmental hygiene
  • Promote and co-ordinate biomedical and health services research
  • Promote improved standards of teaching and training in the health, medical and related professions
  • Establish and stimulate the establishment of international standards for biological, pharmaceutical and similar products, and to standardize diagnostic procedures
  • Foster activities in the field of mental health, especially those activities affecting the harmony of human relations

WHO also proposes conventions, agreements, regulations and makes recommendations about international nomenclature of diseases, causes of death and public health practices. It develops, establishes and promotes international standards concerning foods and biological, pharmaceutical and similar substances.

About:


World Islamic Association for Mental Health [WIAMH] is an Islamic organization founded in the 1980s.

Since modern psychiatry is a Western import to the Muslims it was felt by pioneer Muslim psychiatrists, that for psychiatry to work more effectively in the Muslim world all aspects of the psychiatric process including Diagnosis, Prognosis Treatment, and Planning for Psychiatric Facilities, have to be adapted to the Islamic cultural context. The major objectives are to promote mental health in Muslim countries and to carry research in cultural psychiatry of the Muslims.
