How do I access WHO RSS feeds?
You need to set your news reader to retrieve the RSS feed from the WHO web site. To do this you will need to copy the link to the service you wish to subscribe to. You then need to follow the instructions for your particular news reader to subscribe to a new service, and paste this link into your news reader.
What does an RSS feed look like?
Each RSS feed consists of the most recent news stories in summary form. An example of a PMNCH news release in this format would be as follows:
