Global health expert: The WHO deserves our thanks

The World Health Organization has come under fire over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, with President Trump cutting all U.S. funding for the U.N. health agency in April. But WHO adviser Lawrence Gostin says the organization has actually done well in the pandemic, despite a miniscule budget and political interference. “Yes, they can be slow, they can be bureaucratic,” he says. “But my God, what they’ve done for the world.” Gostin is a professor at Georgetown University, where he is the O’Neill chair in Global Health Law.
