Negotiations on World Health Organization Pandemic Treaty Extended for a Year

The World Health Organization’s member states have agreed to extend negotiations on a pandemic treaty for up to a year. The decision to continue the negotiations was made at the World Health Assembly meeting on 1 June. However, an agreement was reached on a package of amendments to the International Health Regulations.

It is certainly good news that no consensus was reached on the pandemic treaty. This outcome can be attributed not just to a public backlash but also to significant political opposition. The UK government and nearly half of the US Senate had voiced concerns about national sovereignty and opposed the treaty.

However, the World Health Assembly did approve a package of amendments to the International Health Regulations, which will come into effect in 12 months unless rejected by member states within 10 months. These amendments introduce several contentious points, including a broad definition of “pandemic emergency” that grants the World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General significant discretion in determining whether one exists; obligations for countries to support access to products such as experimental vaccines; and provisions that essentially resemble a vaccine passport system.

Particularly notably, the amendments also require states to develop core capacities to address the supposed spread of ‘misinformation’ and ‘disinformation’ during pandemics. Many people understandably see this as a blatant attempt to prevent the spread of truthful information about science-based natural health approaches and dangerous experimental vaccines.
