Summary
The Lancet has published a joint letter from UK Health Forum and other public-interest NGOs involved in global health governance and the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, to the candidates for the next WHO Director-General. The three candidates have been invited to describe how, if elected, they will ensure greater transparency, rigor and public scrutiny of WHO’s policy, regulatory and norm setting activities so that they are adequately protected from undue commercial interests, with a particular focus on alcohol, food, pharmaceutical and medical technology industries. The Lancet has agreed to publish the replies received.
