In April 2016, while undertaking a Masters of International and Community Development (MICD dual specialisation), I had the opportunity to undertake a work internship at the World Health Organization (WHO) Western Pacific Regional Office and Country Office in the Philippines. According to the United Nations (UN) Foundations, the WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the UN system. It is the member of the United Nations Development Group that is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, including shaping the health research agenda, providing support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends (United Nations Foundation, 2016).
