WHO member states agree to develop legally-binding pandemic treaty
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that member states inched closer to developing a legally binding global pandemic treaty.
“I welcome the agreement by @WHO Member States to develop a zero draft of a legally binding #PandemicAccord designed to protect the world from future pandemics and to continue discussions on the draft in February 2023,” said WHO CEO Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
The development follows a third meeting from WHO member states to develop a global pandemic treaty. The first meeting was in December 2021, and the second was in March 2022.
It’s unclear how the WHO’s pandemic treaty will affect its 194 member states, including Canada.
