Ebola : WHO admits it botched response to outbreak - The Globe and Mail
In a draft internal document obtained by Associated Press, the WHO says “nearly everyone” involved in the response failed to notice the potential for Ebola’s explosive spread.
The agency acknowledged that its own #bureaucracy was a problem, pointing out that the heads of WHO country offices in Africa are “politically motivated appointments” made by the WHO regional director for Africa.
At a meeting of WHO’s experts on outbreaks in June, a senior WHO official alerted the agency’s chief that some national health agencies and medical charities thought WHO was “compromising rather than aiding the response” to the Ebola crisis.
