[Editorial] The case for investing in WHO

“This is not about only investing in an institution, it’s about investing in people, it’s about investing in a healthier, safer, fairer world”, said Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at the launch of WHO’s first ever investment case. These emphatic words set the tone for an ambitious goal: to make the case for the investment needed to deliver WHO’s 5-year strategic plan, approved earlier this year—the 13th General Programme of Work, 2019–2023 (GPW13). That WHO is articulating its investment case is unprecedented and welcome.
