Description
International cooperation for sound life and the promotion of living standard s of humankind and the elimination of hunger from human society achieved the birth of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) in October 16, 1945. The agreement for the promotion of human health was connected to the extablishment of the WHO (World Health Organization of the United Nations) in April 7, 1948.

In the mean time, Korea, who became a member of both organizations in 1949, is endeavoring for the National health by improving of school feeding and popularzing of National gymnastics. In spite of our great and incessant efforts for the solving of food and health problems, some counties are still suffering from bad harvests and hunger.

The International conference on Nutrition, being held for 7 days from December 5 to 11, 1992, in Rome,Italy to renovate the present nutrition problem will be very meaningful for us .

The Ministry of Communications issues this Postage Stamp, hoping that the International cooperation should be well accomplished by the preparation of the everlasting countermeasures to eliminate these hunger and malnutrition problems from our human society in this conference.
