The establishment of WHO Press consolidates publishing activities within the World Health Organization and reflects the importance of knowledge sharing in a world where the health needs of the world's poor are not being met, as demonstrated by the findings of the 10/90 gap study of the Global Forum for Health Research. WHO Press is therefore the publisher of choice for the dissemination of important scientific, technical and medical advice that the World Health Organization wishes to deliver to the world.
