It seems even Germany can see that WHO is in desperate need of reform. Jens Spahn, Germany’s health minister, told the FT that WHO was susceptible to “influence by individual members” and that Trump “had a point.”
He added, “WHO needs to reform its governance and accountability…We need to figure out exactly where the money goes.”
We would merely hold Dr Tedros to words from his maiden WHO speech,
“A key priority for me is to enhance our approach to resource mobilization among donors, old and new. And that has to start by building confidence among partners, that WHO will deliver results and impact. I want WHO to be synonymous with results.”
Trump is only acting in accordance with his wishes.
