WHO DG Tedros To Review Agency’s Travel Spending

Associated Press: U.N. health agency’s new chief says he will check travel costs
“…In a ‘Town Hall’ speech given to staffers in Geneva and in regional and country offices, Tedros said he would be examining ‘the recent uproar over travel costs.’ … ‘WHO must deliver value for money,’ Tedros said upon taking office this week. ‘I am reviewing the situation thoroughly and will ensure that our resources are used efficiently.’ After he was elected in May, Tedros said that if WHO’s travel costs were not justifiable, they would have to be addressed…” (Cheng, 7/7).
