The Paris World Health Organization (ParisWHO) is a student-led association whose mission is to introduce and educate students and young professionals from various disciplines with the realistic roles of a traditional WHO World Health Assembly. Our annual ParisWHO simulations seek to fill a gap in students' public health education, while also serving as a call to health professionals and students from other fields to become proactive in global health policy. 



"Each of these experiences has reminded me that targets, plans, strategies, guidelines and meetings, although important, are not ends in themselves; they’re not the reason we exist. The reason we exist is people: to promote health, keep the world safe, and serve the vulnerable"

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus
Director-General of the World Health Organization
