WHO Beefs Up Response to Health Emergencies

The UN’s Special Envoy on Ebola makes sweeping recommendations to help fortify the WHO response to global health emergencies

The United Nation’s Special Envoy on Ebola says he has made sweeping recommendations to help fortify the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) response to global health emergencies.

Dr David Nabarro, who serve as Chair of an Advisory Group on Reform at the WHO, presented his recommendations seeking to strengthen the global health organisations abilities in the face of an emergency similar to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. 

While the current outbreak in the region is nearing zero, Nabarro has warned against getting too excited at the prospect for now.
