As an agency that directs and coordinates world health affairs, the World Health Organization (WHO) plays an important role in maintaining international health security. However, since 2020, the outbreak and continued spread of COVID-19 has caused a serious international public health crisis and a serious threat to the safety and health of all mankind. As the most important intergovernmental international organization in the field of health, the response and management of the COVID-19 crisis by WHO has attracted much attention, but it has also been questioned. This essay summarizes a series of measures taken by WHO in response to COVID-19, and analyzes the role played by WHO in the management of the COVID-19 crisis from three aspects: leadership, guidance and coordination. Next, the essay analyzes the challenges for WHO to play its role in the context of COVID-19. Finally, the essay provides some suggestions for WHO’s efforts to deal with COVID-19, so as to make WHO play a more effective role in the global health governance system. The purpose of this essay is to help understand WHO’s role in the international community through specific events, so as to have a more comprehensive understanding of WHO, and also to provide reference for global COVID-19 prevention and control.
