WHO creates new foundation in a bid for more funds


The World Health Organisation has called on members of the public to start donating funds to its new foundation.

It comes after Donald Trump threatened to permanently pull US funding from the global health body.

The body said it has set up the WHO Foundation to “broaden its contributor base”.

But when asked whether the WHO Foundation had been set up as a response to the threat, WHO director general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus insisted the initiative had been in the making for two years.
