Despite the early successes of the WHO, its performance in recent years in
fighting diseases like malaria and HIV/AIDS raises serious concerns. Medical policies
that prioritize a "one size fits all" approach, together with a greater concern for publicity
and political correctness rather than health standards, leaves many outside observers and experts worried.
These problems also concern U.S. taxpayers, since the United States has always
been the WHO's largest contributor, currently providing 22 percent of the WHO's
regular budget. In 2006-2007, that amount will be approximately $201 million.
