who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Health strategy rejected. European executive directors and alternates have written a letter to staff in the human development network to explain their rejection of the draft health, nutrition and population strategy.

Gender and reproductive health groups have been bombarding the directors with complaints over the alleged watering down of the strategy by Wolfowitz-appointee managing director Juan José Daboub.

In their letter, the directors sternly rebuke Bank staff for disregarding board directions and the Development Communiqué, calling it "surprising" that the strategy makes virtually no reference to sexual and reproductive health.

The directors have called for a postponement of the scheduled 24 April board discussion of the strategy.

Daboub's position must surely now be in question.
