World Health Organisation (WHO), the world's largest coordinating body for healthcare, has the irreplaceable role of integrating global resources. It is the only organisation with the global reach. Being caught amid a tug-of-war between the US and China is therefore not helping the organisation to deal with the pandemic. Apart from losing out vital funds, the WHO is also facing a credibility crisis, which undercuts its ability to fulfil its other roles on global health. Thus, India, in its unique position, must take a stance in rescuing this organisation from the current crisis.
