Call for Action: Funding to WHO
On April 14, the US Administration announced its intention to withhold funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) pending an evaluation of its response to COVID-19. With over two million cases and almost 130,000 deaths, we are in the middle of the worst public health crisis of our lifetime. This is a dangerous step in the wrong direction and will ultimately affect the most vulnerable communities around the world, particularly in Low and Middle-Income countries where governments and health workers rely heavily on WHO. Michele Barry, Director, Center for Innovation in Global Health and the Senior Associate Dean for Global Health, Stanford School of Medicine, is part of a group trying to get the G20 to step in via a Call to Action. Well over 100 organizations and health leaders have already signed a letter which be accessed here. Please consider putting on your website or sending to your congressperson. Read More>>
