Statement from WHO Magazine

Regarding our story on Adut Akech on 27 August 2019

WHO sincerely apologises for the incorrect image that appeared in this week’s magazine.

Unfortunately the agency that set up our interview with Adut Akech supplied us with the wrong photograph to accompany the piece.

WHO spoke directly with Adut to explain how the error occurred and have sincerely apologised.

We also apologise to Flavia Lazarus for the misprint.

Our intention was to share Adut’s inspiring story and highlight her achievements. We are committed to increasing the diversity in the pages of WHO, and arranged the interview in view of this. Hopefully the result of our misprint will be more people talking about this issue in the industry and tackling it head-on.
