The United Kingdom and all Member States of the World Health Organization (WHO) pay an annual membership fee known as an assessed contribution. The scale of the contribution is calculated by the United Nations based mainly on the country’s GDP and the contribution is used to fund the WHO’s functions. In 2023, the UK paid £20,241,404 in assessed contributions.
