WHO DG Tedros Urges More Political Leadership, Investment To Improve Africa’s Health Care Systems

Deutsche Welle: World Health Organization blames Africa’s health care inequality on lack of political will
“…A recent study by the World Health Organization found that a lack of political will and little financial allocation to the health sector were to blame for health inequalities in Africa. Now [WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus] is on a mission to mobilize African leaders to improve health systems if universal health care is to become a reality. … 47 African health ministers are attending the 67th annual session of the World Health Regional Committee this week…” (Musvanhiri, 8/30).
