The World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) is pleased to endorse the InterAction Council of former heads of state and government’s Global Responsibilities and an Emergency Framework for Countries and Communities.

The InterAction Council’s framework aligns well with the WFPHA’s guiding principles of solidarity, social justice, human rights, equity, evidenced-informed policy and practice, and the need to address the underlying socio-economic, commercial, human rights-related and political determinants of health. The WFPHA’s Global Charter for the Public’s Health aligns well with and supports the Framework’s elements. Besides calling for strengthening the primary elements of public health (disease and injury prevention, health promotion and health protection) and health system operations and measures, the Framework recommends an all-of-society approach across all sectors for future pandemic and emergency responses.
