WHO Ebola response was a failure, reports say

EBOLA1The World Health Organisation failed in its response to the Ebola outbreak, an independent report

The Ebola crisis proves the World Health Organization lacks the “capacity and culture” to deal with global health emergencies, says a damning independent report, commissioned by the WHO itself.

The review panel says WHO was too slow to act to get on top of the deadly virus which has now killed more than 11,000 people in West Africa.
WHO has already admitted that it waited too long to declare Ebola a public health emergency of international concern.CHANWHO Director General, Margaret Chan

According to BBC, WHO Director General, Margaret Chan admitted in May that the outbreak had overwhelmed and shook the organization to its core.

According to the report which was first seen by BBC, WHO hoped the crisis could be managed by good diplomacy rather than by scaling up emergency action.
