Does the WHO act in the interest of Global Public Health? – Vienna

September 19th

  • Venue: CAFE LANDTMANN
  • Time: 02:00 PM
  • Universitätsring 4 Vienna 1010, Austria

The Consumer Choice Center hosts six media roundtables discussing the effectiveness of the World Health Organization (WHO) in September 2018.

We invite journalists, regulators, policy-makers, and civil society to join us for presentations on the WHO’s shortcomings in working towards better global public health and how the WHO actively blocks healthier technologies in the area of harm reduction. We also want to look at the implications of the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) assessment of the Pesticide Glyphosate. Does the WHO politicize science? How much does evidence play a role in crafting WHO policy recommendations?

‘Too busy with the wrong priorities: Does the WHO suffer from Mission Creep?’ Fred Roeder, Health Economist and Managing Director of the Consumer Choice Center
