New York Times Examines Role Of World Bank President Kim In Ebola Response

New York Times: Head of World Bank Makes Ebola His Mission
“…[World Bank President Jim] Kim — a 54-year-old Korean-American whose brash style has alienated many at the bank he leads — [has become] a key figure in a crisis that has exposed yawning gaps in the world’s capacity to respond to deadly epidemics. … The nomination of Dr. Kim, who is trained as a medical doctor and an anthropologist, was met with skepticism by the development establishment. But he has found his moment with Ebola, a large-scale test of ideas that he and his medical school friend Paul Farmer have been developing since 1987, when they and others founded Partners in Health, a nonprofit that provides health care to some of the world’s poorest people…” (Tavernise, 10/13).
