1993 Healthy Environment
UN Offices in New York
The World Health Organization (WHO) has worked for individual, national, and global health for 45 years. Soaring populations, mounting waste products, and ill-advised use of natural resources has led to environmental degradation. This adversely affects humanity’s health and the health of Earth itself.
Global problems and global solutions begin at the grassroots level. New York stamps represent the personal and family levels. WHO’s vision of health is all inclusive – from personal hygiene and avoidance of tobacco products to family planning and health care for the elderly.
