WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs Myron Brilliant issued the following statement on the administration’s announcement regarding the World Health Organization (WHO):

“The Chamber supports a reformed but functional World Health Organization, and U.S. leadership and involvement are essential to ensuring its transparency and accountability going forward. However, cutting the WHO’s funding during the COVID-19 pandemic is not in U.S. interests given the organization’s critical role assisting other countries — particularly in the developing world — in their response."
