History

Dec 1902, Washington DC (USA), as International Sanitary Bureau -- Bureau sanitaire international, at 1st General International Convention of the American Republics. Current title adopted in 1923. On setting up of the Pan American Sanitary Organization -- Organisation sanitaire panaméricaine -- Organización Sanitaria Panamericana, 1947, PASB became Executive Organ of that body, which is currently Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and is one of 6 specialized organizations of Organization of American States (OAS). At the same time, PASB is linked to the United Nations System in that it serves within World Health Organization (WHO) as WHO Regional Office for the Americas (AMRO) -- Bureau régional de l'OMS pour les Amériques -- Oficina Regional de la OMS para las Américas. PASB is therefore also known as Pan American Sanitary Bureau / WHO Regional Office for the Americas (PASB/AMRO).
