WHO incapable of reacting to crises such as Ebola, says report
The Guardian 7 July 2015 - "World Health Organisation lacks the capacity and internal culture to mount an effective response to an epidemic such as the Ebola outbreak in west Africa, according to a searing report that also blames governments for failing to support the group.
The report of the Ebola Interim Assessment Panel, led by Dame Barbara Stocking, a former head of Oxfam, was commissioned by the WHO’s executive. It says the organisation was too slow in its response to the Ebola epidemic and that it was underfunded." (by Sarah Boseley) (Photo: Pascal Guyot/AFP/Getty Images)
