We already pay a tax on internet service; check your broadband bill. Why should the World Health Organization have a say on taxes at all?

The UN is just all talk. They can say the world is round and it would mean nothing.

Oh wait...

It's just one of a number of suggestions that the UN has put forward for how to raise money in order to improve health in poorer nations. It's a pretty good aim I reckon

When those poorer countries quit shooting each other....

They've got enough money to buy gun, but enough to buy a water distribution system.
