by SARAH WHEATON, Politico: World’s doctor gives WHO a headache
Seven months into his tenure, the early moves of the WHO’s first African chief are stoking a backlash.

His supporters say Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus promised to shake the institution up. The critics, increasingly emboldened, say he’s undermining the World Health Organization’s effectiveness and putting its funding at risk.

Who: said bromance was dead?

Last week social media went up a storm, when Mugabe was appointed a goodwill ambassador. I am sure we have all heard of these shortest celebrity marriages done on a whim. This new bromance between Mugabe and Dr Tedros takes the biscuit. After 37 hours they had already called it quits.

The whole situation reeks to high heaven. I think there is more to this than meets the eye. Dr Tedros needs to put in his resignation and step down from that high chair of his. Who in their right mind would appoint someone who does not even trust his own country’s health system? It is known that Mugabe goes to Singapore for his treatments even for something small, such a disgrace. Maybe he should be appointed WHO Ambassador to Asia for promoting healthcare and medical tourism to that region.

How Tedros Adhanom’s blunderous judgement over Robert Mugabe may cost WHO the goodwill it needs

by Helen Branswell,Stat

The global health community is struggling to make sense of a blunder that has shaken confidence in the new director-general of the World Health Organization and given rise to concerns — both outside and within the WHO — about the impact the episode will have on the credibility of the agency he leads.

Mere days after hitting the 100-day mark of his first term in the office, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus appointed Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe to a ceremonial position of honor, naming the longtime authoritarian as a WHO goodwill ambassador for noncommunicable diseases.

Lacking good judgement & moral compass, corrupt Tedros Adhanom designates fellow traveller Mugabe WHO Goodwill Ambassador —       Wait for more TPLF decadence to infest hitherto best run UN body — Poor WHO!

Harare – The United Nations faced criticism on Friday after naming Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe a “goodwill ambassador” to promote health causes, despite the country’s dire health crisis under his rule.

The UN World Health Organisation (WHO) asked Mugabe to serve in the role to help tackle non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart attacks, strokes and asthma across Africa.

Meet the world’s most powerful doctor: Bill Gates

Some billionaires are satisfied with buying themselves an island. Bill Gates got a United Nations health agency in Geneva.

Meet the world’s most powerful doctor: Bill Gates
The software mogul’s sway over the World Health Organization spurs criticism about misplaced priorities and undue influence (credit: Politico)

Over the past decade, the world’s richest man has become the World Health Organization’s second biggest donor, second only to the United States and just above the United Kingdom. This largesse gives him outsized influence over its agenda, one that could grow as the U.S. and the U.K. threaten to cut funding if the agency doesn’t make a better investment case.

The result, say his critics, is that Gates’ priorities have become the WHO’s. Rather than focusing on strengthening health care in poor countries — that would help, in their view, to contain future outbreaks like the Ebola epidemic — the agency spends a disproportionate amount of its resources on projects with the measurable outcomes Gates prefers, such as the effort to eradicate polio.
