Global health is a graveyard of good intentions. WHO’s Director-General, Tedros Adhanom
Ghebreyesus, gave a widely admired address to the World Health Assembly last week.
He spoke of “the profound consequences of conflict” for health and concluded his speech
with these words: “Unless we seek peace, we will find war. Today, and every day, we
have a choice—we make the choices. And today, and every day, we must choose health
for peace, and peace for health. Peace, peace, peace.” One choice his agency has made
is to erase the existence of over 5 million people from its “comprehensive” assessment
of world health—WHO’s flagship World Health Statistics 2022.
