What is EdmontonWHO?
The Edmonton World Health Organization Simulation is an annual 3-day conference hosted at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. EdmontonWHO simulates the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) that meets annually in Geneva, Switzerland.
EdmontonWHO participants assume the role of a member state delegate and work with their peers to develop resolution papers to address the health challenges surrounding the global health theme of the year.
Our goal is to introduce students to the fundamental operations of the World Health Organization and create opportunities for all participants to play a proactive role in learning about global health and policy.
The conference brings together students from a wide range of disciplines to discuss global health issues in a manner that is respectable and intended to develop a deeper understanding of health, sustainability and progress. We welcome students from all educational backgrounds to be a part of our 2018 conference.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Our goal is to bring awareness to the multidimensional and global aspect of healthcare in the modern world.
