"WHO and other aid agency staff were accused by 50 women (from DR Congo) in a joint investigation by two news agencies. Local women were allegedly plied with drinks, "ambushed" in hospitals, forced to have sex, and two became pregnant.
The allegations cover the period between 2018 and March this year.
The New Humanitarian news agency and the Thomson Reuters Foundation have carried out an almost year-long investigation."

There's a dark, unaccountable underworld going on in these global organizations such as WHO.

We've seen it with the Olympic Committees, FIFA, other UN agencies - they are non-democratic bodies whose high-paid members wield tremendous power. The sexual abuse is a symptom of what they think they can get away with it.

Systemic sexual abuse by UN organizations has long been a problem. In response to exposure of abuse in Haiti two years ago, WHO loudly pledged a policy of "zero tolerance, rigorous training for staff and proper reporting systems."

What a crock that turned out to be. Now WHO is promising a "robust investigation" into the latest allegations - that their "proper reporting systems" failed to detect for two over two years.

Hands up all those who think that investigation will be anything more than a cover-up job.
