[Comment] Offline: NCDs, WHO, and the neoliberal utopia

The WHO Independent High-Level Commission on Non-Communicable Diseases presented an important opportunity. Yet, by common consensus, it failed to deliver. The Guardian newspaper reported that, “An independent panel advising the World Health Organisation has stopped short of recommending taxing sugary drinks to reduce obesity after failing to reach a consensus.” WHO scrambled to reassure critics that the agency “still supported taxing” sugar-sweetened beverages. The Commission was left unhappily advocating a set of recommendations substantially weaker than those already existing.
