The American Mock World Health Organization, Inc. (AMWHO) was created on January 10th, 2014 on a plane ride home from the Ontario Model World Health Organization Simulation (OMWHO) in Toronto, Canada. Neha Acharya attended the conference and was inspired to introduce model-WHO conferences within the United States. With the help of UNC Chapel Hill, the first international simulation of the World Health Assembly occurred in October 2014. Since then, the organization has created international, regional, and local conferences, all to further promote global health policy education for students around the country.
AMWHO, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a Board of Directors and Advisory Board committed to create annual international conferences, expand the chapter network, and empower future leaders in global health policy. By becoming an AMWHO delegate, member, or sponsor, you are contributing to the larger organizational vision of equipping global health students with skills necessary to achieve health for all.
