A New Chapter for the WHO and USA - and Ethiopia
We are delighted to learn that one of the first actions of President Biden has been to re-establish the United States' engagement with the World Health Organisation. This was confirmed in a message to Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, the Ethiopian head of the organisation. Ensuring a fair distribution of Covid-19 vaccinations around the world will be a key challenge. Kamala Harris, the new Vice President, has also emphasised the need to strengthen the global response to the virus and mitigate the secondary impacts, including on women and girls.
