Letter to WHO on Commercialisation of Healthcare Systems

Eight organisations, including PHM, sent an open letter to Ms Zsuzsanna Jakab, Deputy Director-General of the World Health Organisation raising concerns about a recent WHO report that could encourage privatisation of health care amidst a raging Covid-19 pandemic. The contents of the Report are being operationalised without prior discussion and approval by the World Health Assembly (WHA), despite the importance and sensitivity of the issue. The statement also notes a lack of consultative process with a diverse group of civil society organisations in development of this report.
