Health Clusters exist to relieve suffering and save lives in humanitarian emergencies while advancing the well-being and dignity of affected populations.
The Global Health Cluster exists to support Health Clusters in countries. It can make a difference by:
There are 49 Health Cluster partners at the global level and more than 700 partners in countries. These partners include international organizations and UN agencies, nongovernmental organizations, national authorities, affected communities, specialized agencies, academic and training institutes and donor agencies.
WHO is the Cluster Lead Agency and it provides secretariat support through the Global Health Cluster Team in the WHO Emergency Operations Department.
