Global Health Watch: BWIs bigger than WHO
News||12 September 2005|update 47|
In July the Global Health Watch 2005 was released, targeting the BWIs for their role in weakening public health care systems. The report, meant as an alternative to the World Health Organisation's World Health Report was spearheaded by The People's Health Movement, Medact and The Global Equity Gauge Alliance. The report assesses the state of health care systems and services; the health of vulnerable communities such as indigenous peoples; the wider health context including climate change and war; and the role of global institutions, corporations and rich countries. The section on the BWIs says that the Bank "has become a much bigger influence than the WHO in the health sector."
