🤝 WHO meets the Taliban. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), held talks with the Taliban’s health leader in Geneva on Tuesday on Afghanistan’s “dire” health situation. Tedros said in a tweet on Wednesday that he had met with Qalandar Ebad to discuss “the health needs in the country”. A delegation of the Taliban arrived in Geneva on Sunday to meet with NGOs and institutions in an effort to unblock access to humanitarian aid, as first reported by Geneva Solutions. The visit was organised by Geneva Call, a humanitarian organisation that engages with non-state armed groups on the protection of civilians.
