Local activities


Situated in France, the WHO Lyon Office serves as a portal to WHO for the community in Lyon and plays an important role in facilitating access to WHO resources and raising awareness of its activities. We establish partnerships with local institutions; participate actively in public health events organized in Lyon and in the Rhône-Alpes region and raise awareness about our activities among the local media and general public.
