W.H.O COMES UNDER FIRE FROM EXPERT PANEL OVER EBOLA IN WEST AFRICA.

Many have continued to say that the world left Africa to itself, when the Ebola Virus Disease event started in West Africa!!! I personally thought the response was not as swift as expected, considering the nature of the disease in question.

Now, a panel of global health experts has strongly criticized the World Health Organization, saying it mishandled the response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

The panel, convened by Harvard Global Health Institute and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, called for extensive reform in the way infectious diseases are managed around the world, but singled out the WHO in particular for criticism.

According to CNN, the Director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, Ashish K. Jha said,

“The most egregious failure was by WHO in the delay in sounding the alarm. People at WHO were aware that there was an Ebola outbreak that was getting out of control by spring… and yet, it took until August to declare a public health emergency. The cost of the delay was enormous”
