In Geneva, the World Health organization faces its moment of truth. It can veer away from its increasing politicization and rediscover its commitment to improve the world's health or it can continue on its present course. If it continues to become politicized, however, it must know that the U.S. will reconsider its membership in WHO. It is WHO'S choice.
