Protect WHO From Alcohol Industry InterferencePosted May 09 2021
The WHO Foundation was set up to raise funds for the World Health Organisation’s important work but from sources that the WHO itself cannot and should not access – to protect its mission, credibility and legitimacy.
This controversial arrangement has come under intense scrutiny and criticism as the WHO Foundation silently changed its gift giving policy in April 2021. The change now allows for the alcohol industry to donate to the WHO Foundation.
Movendi International members have reacted decisively and started a letter-writing campaign to call on the WHO Foundation leadership to put the alcohol industry in the same category as the tobacco industry and to not accept any donations of any kind.
