It will be interesting, perhaps depressing, to see which US scientists are selected to advise the World Health Organization. Previously WHO had selected appropriate scientists for their needs. Now the administration will pick them based, I guess, on the administration’s needs:
Instead, Steiger’s Office of Global Health Affairs now will choose “an appropriate expert who can best serve both of our organizations,” he said. HHS experts made available also must advocate U.S. government policies, Steiger said.Yep, I like that last key criteria. Apparently good science is not the main goal.
