WHO DG Tedros Confirms Office Of Internal Oversight Investigating Charges Of Misconduct Within Agency

Associated Press: AP Exclusive: U.N. health chief orders probe into misconduct
“The head of the World Health Organization has ordered an internal investigation into allegations the U.N. health agency is rife with racism, sexism, and corruption, after a series of anonymous emails with the explosive charges were sent to top managers last year. … Last month, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told staffers he had instructed the head of WHO’s office of internal oversight to look into the charges raised by the emails. He confirmed that directive to the AP on Thursday. Critics, however, doubt that WHO can effectively investigate itself and have called for the probe to be made public…” (Cheng/Keaten, 1/17).
