Emergencies Program in 2016, industry leads endowed with its own budget and specific processes, and which develops operational capacities to intervene more quickly, especially with regard to these fragile states: the WHO sent, for example, test kits to the African industry leads continent. The IHR finally provides that States can take measures beyond the WHO recommendations, as long as they report them to the organization within 48 industry leads hours – which is far from the case, since in the case of closures of borders in response to Covid-19 for example, more than a third did not. How do you characterize the industry leads action of the member states of the WHO and especially of China in handling the crisis? Although the recent epidemics generated changes in the WHO, one thing has not changed: the WHO remains an intergovernmental industry leads organization and only has the authority that its member states have wanted to grant it. In particular, it must respect their sovereignty and cannot show signs of interference in industry leads their internal affairs. The WHO also continues to depend on funding from its member states to function. Its budget is made up of industry leads of voluntary contributions from the States, that is, of the money that is allocated to specific programs or actions of the organization (for polio, the fight against obesity, etc.), and 20% of regular contributions. Also, the WHO industry leads budget is increasingly fragmented into multiple programs, making it difficult to understand. This "donor dependency" limits the room for maneuver of the WHO, which industry leads currently seeks to promote investment in the organization as something profitable to attract donors.
