WHO 'unfit to deal with global emergencies' : report

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 9 July 2015

A report on the Ebola outbreak, which has killed more than eleven thousand people in West Africa, has concluded that the World Health Organisation lacks the capacity and culture to deal with global health emergencies. The independent report found the W.H.O's response was hampered by a lack of funding and poor communication. Dame Barbara Stocking led the independent panel which conducted the review.
