The WHO Office in Serbia was established as a humanitarian assistance office in June 1992 in Belgrade to provide public health advice to United Nations agencies and humanitarian assistance to vulnerable populations during the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia. In October 2002, a formal agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and WHO transformed the office into a full country office which is the focal point for all WHO activities in Serbia. In addition, south-eastern Europe activities are managed from the Country Office.
