Abstract

Once a year, delegates of WHO member states gather in Geneva for the World Health Assembly (WHA) to establish WHO’s priorities and programmes for the coming year. Those health practitioners, scholars, advocates, and journalists who are brave (or foolish) enough to come to the event jostle for credentials and queue for security, after spending thousands of dollars and burning tanks of jet fuel, with no guarantee of having a seat in the small public gallery.
