Waldo.  Health isn't included - like mosquito nets.  Is that because it's a sister organization?

following up on member squid's correct attachment; and yes, WHO - World Health Organization: "The World Health Organization is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is concerned with international public health."

67. Halting the Spread of Epidemics

The World Health Organization helped to stop the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). In March 2003, it issued a global alert and emergency travel advisory, and its leadership helped to stop this new disease, which had the potential to become a worldwide epidemic. WHO investigates over 200 disease outbreaks each year, 15 to 20 of which require an international response. Some of the more prominent diseases for which WHO is leading the global response include Ebola, meningitis, yellow fever, cholera and influenza, including avian influenza.

as an aside, the list wasn't intended to be all-encompassing; it derives from the UN's 2015 70th anniversary: 70 Ways the UN Makes A Difference
