WHO Health Emergencies Programme Making Progress But Challenges Remain, Report Says

Devex: 18 months in, how is WHO’s health emergencies program working?
“…When the [West African Ebola] crisis waned, much of the criticism fell on the World Health Organization for its initial response and lack of preparedness. The agency pledged to do better and launched a new Health Emergencies Programme that would operate coherently across the three levels of the organization, with a clear set of structure, processes, and lines of authority. Fast forward to 2017, and the program has made progress in making this a reality, according to a new report by the Independent Oversight and Advisory Committee. … But significant challenges remain, says the IOAC…” (Ravelo, 1/31).
