World Harm Organization (World Health Organization or WHO nickname)

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations concerned with public health. Some critics during the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic claimed that WHO was not honest and nicknamed the organization “We Hide Outbreaks.”

“W.H.O. = We Hide Outbreaks” was posted on Twitter by Super Elite Preparation on February 7, 2020. “@stclairashley what does WHO stand for? WE HIDE OUTBREAKS… probably already out there but hey, it’s funny to me” was posted on Twitter by TonyinGa on April 16, 2020. “WHO = We Hide Outbreaks!” was posted on Twitter by Jason Miller on April 17, 2020.

Other World Health Organization (WHO) nicknames include “We Hide Outbreaks,” “World Hell Organization,” “World Hoax Organization,” “World Homicide Organization,” “World’s Horrible Organization,” “Worst Health Organization” and “Wuhan Health Organization.”


Wikipedia: World Health Organization
The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for international public health. The WHO Constitution, which establishes the agency’s governing structure and principles, states its main objective as ensuring “the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health.” It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, with six semi-autonomous regional offices and 150 field offices worldwide.

The WHO was established in 7 April 1948, which is commemorated as World Health Day. The first meeting of the World Health Assembly (WHA), the agency’s governing body, took place on 24 July 1948. The WHO incorporated the assets, personnel, and duties of the League of Nations’ Health Organisation and the Office International d’Hygiène Publique, including the International Classification of Diseases. Its work began in earnest in 1951 following a significant infusion of financial and technical resources.
