In BMJ Global Health Article, Experts Call For WHO To Outsource Some Responsibilities

The Guardian: World Health Organization should outsource key duties, experts say
“…Writing in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) [Global Health], Professor Joel Negin of the University of Sydney and Dr. Ranu Dhillon of Harvard Medical School say that only radical reform of the organization will ensure it can get sufficient funding in the coming years and tackle public health crises. … At the heart of the vision for reform outlined in the article is a radical change to the way the WHO operates, with vital activities outsourced to other key players in the global health field, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria, and frontline humanitarian response groups including Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)…” (Grant, 9/12).
