(WHO brand guidelines will be provided to the successful company) The visual identity must convey a dynamic energy and commitment to deliver health services to all people, no matter when or where they are. It is important to note that the project will be implemented globally.

Thus, the visual identity layout and messaging must work in the different languages. During this phase of the project, materials will be developed in English and French. (The company is not required to undertake any translation).
Messaging: WHO Fleet Services is more than vehicles, it is about serving people. WHO’s mission is to build a better, healthier future for people all over the world. It does this by “promoting health, keeping the world safe and serving the vulnerable.” The vehicles represent WHO’s capacity to deliver on its mandate. WHO’s fleet is the ‘blood supply’ for delivering health programmes.WHO’s vehicles enable staff to support health ministries to immunize children against diseases such as polio, measles, yellow fever and other vaccine preventable diseases. During a disease outbreak, our disease detectives, called epidemiologists help to find the cause, contain its spread and treat the sick. These interventions are all made possible through WHO’s fleet. Our vehicles not only transport staff but also essential medical supplies to health facilities in sprawling urban centres to remote and hard-to-reach areas, including conflict affected areas.
Qualities to be conveyed through the visual identity:
Keywords: Professional, customer service orientated, dynamic, innovative, dependable, safe, environmental friendly, cost effective, strong operational capacity (i.e. ability to quickly scale-up our operations during an emergency and ramp down when a situation stabilizes).

WFS is not just technical and operational, it is about delivering health for all people. WFS slogan: “Moving forward for a safer and healthier future.”
