Little Clarity on Next Steps

The WHO can expect more pressure from member states and civil society ahead of May’s World Health Assembly, as the executive board session earlier this month left questions on the table about internal reforms and controversies.
Efforts to make UN meetings more efficient “hit a nerve,” Jenny Lei Ravelo writes—spurring concern proposed new formats “appease, rather than include” civil society, according to the Global Health Council’s Executive Director Loyce Pace.
Civil society reps also expressed concern that September’s UN high-level meeting on universal health care lacks ambition and accountability on mobilizing resources, while the Netherlands and others objected to the possible exclusion of sexual and reproductive health rights from the meeting resolution.
