'Shame for WHO': Victim of sex misconduct slams UN response


A woman who says she was victimized by a World Health Organization doctor during a recent Ebola outbreak in Congo said she is shocked that no senior officials were punished for the sexual abuse and exploitation claims involving dozens of women in the conflict-ridden country.

"It undermines the complete integrity of WHO that no one has lost their job over this," said Sophie Harman, a Professor of International Politics at Queen Mary University of London. "If the WHO is serious about gender equality, then it is time for Tedros to go."
