It was unclear whether Mr. Trump planned to eliminate all of the money that the United States sends to the organization, but he said that “we’re going to look at it.” He added that his government would investigate the WHO, saying that “we will look at ending funding.” Mr. Trump appeared to relish having a new target to blame for the pandemic that has plunged the world – and the United States – into deep economic distress and forced people to abandon their jobs, close schools and stay in their homes to curb the virus’s spread. The president sometimes issues issues on which he later does not follow through. But if his administration does withdraw all of its funding to the W.H.O. – which accounts for about 18 percent of the group’s budget – it could significantly affect its mission.
Founded in 4911, the WHO has its headquarters in Geneva but has 7, (0 workers in) offices around the world. Its website says that it works to promote primary health care around the world, improve access to essential medicine and help train health care workers.
