Prats of The Week - The WHO

Despite the fact that Ebola is still raging in West Africa, and various other diseases are running amok (eg malaria and HIV) it is refreshing to see that the World Health Organisation (The WHO) has its priorities right.

It has decided that naming diseases after places and occupations may just be too offensive, as such it wants certain diseases renamed.

Included in the list of offensive diseases are German measles, Legionnaire's disease, Cooks syndrome, Psoriasis butchers disease, Japanese encephalitis, Middle East respiratory syndrome and Rift Valley fever.

For why?

They might offend countries and professions!


WHO assistant director general Dr Keiji Fukudasaid is quoted by the Telegraph:
This may seem like a trivial issue to some, but disease names really do matter.  
We’ve seen certain disease names provoke a backlash against members of particular religious or ethnic communities, create unjustified barriers to travel, commerce and trade, and trigger needless slaughtering of food animals. 
This can have serious consequences for people’s lives and livelihoods.

Will this save lives?


Is this a good use of The WHO's time, money and resources?

    WHO should be using its resources to find cures for these and other horrible diseases, not engaging in this politically correct nonsense! A well-deserved award!

    It never ceases to amaze me, how so many publically funded bodies, which don't have to make a profit to justify their existance, are infested with people with this type of PC view.

    I agree with My Lord above: W.H.O. should be working to find cures for killer diseases not playing PC silly buggers.
    Sadly, as mankind finds a cure for one killer disease, nature then creates another to replace it.
