MISUSE OF World Health Organization (WHO) Logo

03 July 2021

The use of WHO logo is only done after formal authorization to do so by WHO.

 The World Health Organization (WHO) notes with concern the unauthorized use of the WHO logo by several entities to advertise their products.

Recently, an organization, Live Well used the WHO logo on an advertisement for products supposedly used to treat COVID-19. WHO has not worked with Live Well and does NOT endorse their products.

The use of WHO logo is only done after formal authorization to do so by WHO. Appropriate action will be taken in instances where abuse has been noted.

Remember COVID-19 has no cure. Please protect yourselves and your loved ones by following guidance provided by the Government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Health and Child Care.
