Defend the World Health Organization from corporate takeover
Civil Society Statement calling on delegates to the World Health Assembly to defend the integrity and independence of the World Health Organization
In a press conference several Civil Society Organisations called upon the delegates at the World Health Assembly currently taking place in Geneva to support WHO's Director General proposal for a 5% increase in assessed contributions. Furthermore they asked for a robust framework for engagement with non-state actors, to protect the Organization from improper influence. The Civil Society Organisations consider these two decisions as key for the strengthening of the WHO. (Photo: WHO/C. Black)
