2 experts resign from WHO swine flu review panel

2 experts resign from WHO swine flu review panel 22 Jun 2010 The World Health [Homicide] Organization said Tuesday that two members of an expert panel reviewing the global body's response to the swine flu outbreak have resigned over concerns about perceived conflict of interest. John MacKenzie and Tony Evans stepped down because their close association with the UN health organization during the outbreak could be seen as conflicting with the panel's ability to remain independent, WHO said.
