Model WHO conferences are educational simulations in which students and young professionals recreate the process of the annual World Health Assembly as held in the WHO Geneva Headquarters. The focus lies in addressing global health issues at its local, national, and international level.
Delegates can choose from several different roles, including WHO Ambassadors, Media Representative, NGO Representative or Pharmaceutical Representative. During the course of the conference, delegates participate in regional debate sessions to the conference theme in relation to its impact on their representative roles. Once similarities are realised, delegates are able to collaborate in the creation of a resolution paper, a formal document that suggests the methods by which to address these concerns.
