WHO Sees $28M Increase In Flexible Funding; Amount Lower Than Requested By Outgoing DG Chan

Devex: WHO’s budget and the tasks for the next director general
“When Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus takes the helm of the World Health Organization in July, he’ll have an additional $28 million flexible funding at his disposal to use where necessary. That could have been more — as much as 10 percent of member states’ assessed contributions, or $93 million — but WHO was in a pinch. … So as often is the case in international agreements, the secretariat and member states agreed on a compromise…” (Ravelo, 5/30).
