    Very dangerous move to have a Brit in charge of world health iniatives.

    The British alongside Soviet Union, United States, Nazi Germany, North Korea, and Cambodia are on a very abominable list of historical sponsors of civilian medical guinea pigs policies. No one with that atrocious record should get anywhere near the WHO.

    What are you referring to, “civilian medical guinea pigs policies”?

    Not that it's relevant anyway, unless this Nabarro guy was somehow involved. Part of this article reads like it was taken straight from his CV, but I guess that's not so surprising when he is trying to get support by visiting Uruguay. The other two candidates are from Ethiopia and Pakistan, by the way.
