Diagnostic tool on trade and health

The WHA Resolution 59.26 on International trade and health calls upon WHO to provide support for Member States in understanding the implications of international trade and trade agreements for health and addressing relevant issues through policies and legislation.

To implement this resolution, WHO is developing a book on trade and public health and a companion assessment tool that will guide national policymakers building public policies and strategies related to trade and health.
