WHO European Region

Countries, territories and areas in the WHO European Region:


The WHO European Region is made up of 53 countries, each with its own unique cultures, languages, and health systems. This diverse group of nations spans from Iceland in the west to Uzbekistan in the east, and includes both wealthy western European countries like the United Kingdom and less developed countries in the East. Despite these differences, members of the WHO European Region share a common goal: to improve the health and well-being of their citizens. Through collaboration and cooperation, the region works to address both individual health issues and broader public health challenges that impact communities throughout Europe. From promoting healthy lifestyles and preventing disease to strengthening health systems and responding to emergencies, the WHO European Region is focused on achieving a healthier future for all.
