The organization is divided into administrative bodies, including the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, Secretariat, Trusteeship Council, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Additional bodies deal with the governance of all other UN System agencies, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
The UN's most visible public figure is the Secretary-General. The current
Secretary-General is Ban Ki-moon of South Korea, who assumed the post
on 1 January 2007.
