BMJ News Examines WHO Financing And Reform

BMJ News examines financing for and efforts to reform the WHO, which “are raising concerns over conflict of interest.” The article looks at a reform package announced in May by WHO Director-General Margaret Chan at the World Health Assembly, as well as the first World Health Forum, set for November 2012. The forum, which aims to discover the expectations of global health players, “has yet to gain the formal approval of the [WHO] executive board, which will discuss it at its November meeting and again next January,” according to BMJ (Hawkes, 8/9).
