A new study report by a high ranking UN team has said that lives will be lost if the World Health Organisation is not reformed to make it more ready for emergency. The reform it is recommending is to enable the body develop an emergency response capability, such that it can cope with health crisis like the Ebola outbreak in West Africa which cost over 11,000 lives and the current Zika virus infection ravaging the Americas.

Response to both crises has been sloppy as there is no standing emergency response body in place.
