Association of Former WHO Staff (AFSM)

The aim of the Association of Former WHO Staff is to advocate on behalf of all former WHO staff in important matters such as health insurance and pensions benefits. Since WHO former staff lead an active life travelling, writing, teaching, learning new things, and spending time with family and friends, we also try to provide useful information and contacts to enhance and enliven these activities.

Some highlights of the AFSM web site are:

  • information about the Association's structure and procedures;
  • news and views from our health insurance and pension board representatives;
  • Quarterly Newsletter including all issues published since 1989. Cf link below
  • announcements of meetings and travel opportunities.

There are also informative links and features on the history of work at WHO, the extraordinary stories of our accomplishments in the field of global public health.

The web site was made possible by the interest, encouragement and financial support from Dr LEE Jong-wook, WHO Director-General 2003-2006.
