It analyses key criticisms made about the WHOs actions through an examination of the social context in which pandemic management decisions were made, and ultimately illustrations the various ways in which the WHOs account was vulnerable to contestation.Abeysinghe provides a persuasive account of the interplay between uncertain science and the creation of global policy.
