WOHA : Participation increases accountability

wohaThe aspect most attractif of WOHA is the secondary effect of advancing of accountability. If the member state delegation be come aware that the grand public is following them at World Health Assembly, and maybe hold them true to the eloquent words, the WOHA can have a good impact on health matters. It is clair that politiciens are sensitive of what is said on them, and tweeting and blogging on what is said make echos in the home country. Make the Ministers more responsible for the failures of the programmes would strengthen WHO. In simple termes, the more of peoples coming to WOHA, the more accountable the WHO and the high level delegates will be. This is not confrontation approach. It is juste natural bi-product of opening the WHA to WOHA.

L’aspect le plus attractif de WOHA est l’effet secondaire de l’amélioration de la responsabilité. Si la délégation de l’État membre est informée que le grand public les suit à l’Assemblée mondiale de la Santé et s’en tient peut-être aux paroles éloquentes, la WOHA peut avoir un impact positif sur les questions de santé. Il est clair que les politiciens sont sensibles à ce qui est dit, et que les tweets et les blogs sur ce qui est dit font écho dans le pays d’origine. Rendre les ministres plus responsables des échecs des programmes renforcerait l’OMS. En termes simples, plus de peuples se rendent à la WOHA, plus l’OMS et les délégués à haut niveau seront responsables. Ce n’est pas une approche de confrontation. C’est un bi-produit naturel d’ouvrir la WHA à WOHA.
