How To Become An AMWHO Chapter

Modeled after the Ontario and Montreal World Health Organization conferences set in Canada, AMWHO’s primary focus is to raise student awareness of pertinent and current global health issues, along with promoting an understanding of the many roles that students can engage in through a career in global health policy. The organization aims to nurture an interest in global health and health policy, two fields that are often neglected in a standard health education curriculum. Every year, AMWHO conducts an international model-WHO conference that invites undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation and world to simulate the World Health Assembly. AMWHO chapters similarly create smaller-scale conferences that reach students in their state – offering the ability to utilize skills of diplomacy, problem solving, conflict resolution, and communication.

As the national model for the United States, AMWHO seeks to form chapters within universities in each state that incorporate model-WHO simulations and various global health policy activities. With the hope of encouraging greater discourse on relevant health threats to the nation and world, the organization’s chapters require strong leadership intent on gathering student interest and spreading knowledge of global health policy within their student bodies. If you are interested in beginning the process for starting an AMWHO Chapter, please read the below document called “AMWHO Chapter Manual.” Only after having read this manual, follow the outlined steps in the “Steps to Becoming an AMWHO Chapter” section of the Manual.
