AFSM answers queries and gives advice to provide assistance and counsel in case of need.


AFSM promotes the welfare of all members by raising a collective voice, with particular attention to pensions and staff health insurance.


AFSM publishes a Quarterly Newsletter (QNT), issues a Directory of Former WHO Staff, and carries out other social and cultural activities to promote contacts and preserve relations developed while working.
