The Director of World Health Organization (WHO) General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced this Wednesday the creation of a new foundation that will enable it to tap new sources of funding, including the general public.

But the new body’s founder told Reuters its creation was not connected to the “current political situation”.
