How do I reference the WHO Definition of Health in APA (7th ed.) style?


Firstly look at the source you have read the definition in, this could be a book, journal or a reputable website.

Then use this source in your reference list. 

In the reference list:

World Health Organization. (n.d.). Frequently asked questions

In the text you would then cite the source you read the definition in

In text:

In 1948 the World Health Organization (WHO) defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” (WHO, n.d., para. 1).

NB: If you use a direct quote you must use speech marks and include a page or paragraph number.
