Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) will hold a hearing titled “Reforming the WHO: Ensuring Global Health Security and Accountability” to:
Examine the effectiveness of the World Health Organization (WHO),
Assess its response to the COVID-19 pandemic,
And explore areas of improvement should a future health crisis arise.
As the single largest financial contributor to the WHO, the United States has an elevated interest in ensuring taxpayer funds are put to use in a transparent and productive manner. Concerningly, the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated many of the existing shortcomings within the organization and called attention to the WHO’s unwarranted partiality towards the Chinese government. This hearing seeks to delve into the challenges faced by the WHO and hold the world’s leading global health organization accountable for its failures during the COVID-19 pandemic.
