World Health Organization Ombuds Posts Report from Pandemic Year

At the end of a year dominated by a world pandemic, WHO Ombudsman, José Martínez-Aragón, released his annual report. The report describes the activities of the WHO Ombuds program; outlines the most relevant systemic issues identified last year; and follows up on the administration’s response to the recommendations made in previous reports. The report will be considered by the WHO Executive Board at its regular meeting this week.

Martínez-Aragón singled out two systemic issues, which certainly resonate many Ombuds: work-related challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; and progress towards greater diversity and increased efforts to address racism. (WHO Ombuds 2020 Report.)
