WHO Director General Discusses China’s Belt And Road Development Initiative, Recognizes Global Health Role

WHO: China’s Belt and Road to Redefine Global Health Role
In a commentary, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus discusses the ways in which China’s “Belt and Road” development initiative also extends to health, writing, “The World Health Organization commends China’s efforts to integrate health into its economic partnerships. … Together, we can ensure that, on the path to economic development and globalization, health is a platform for growth and trade, not an afterthought. There is unlimited potential, and a window of opportunity for WHO and China to advance a new era of strategic partnership on global health” (July 2018).
