The Gates Foudation – saviour or bully?

In a very interesting article the New York Times’ Donald McNeil describes the bad blood that is brewing between the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the WHO. The Gates Foundation’s spending on health in developing countries dwarfs that of the WHO, and now the Geneva-based health cops are worried that they are losing their authority as Gates-funded scientists railroad through their own solutions to malaria and other health problems.

Is Gates really a bully, or is the WHO just cross that it’s not the biggest boy in the playground any more?
