Covid – 19

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, WFPHA has taken a proactive role, advocating for equitable health measures to overcome the global disparities exacerbated by the pandemic. The crisis in 2020 highlighted the deficiencies in international health responses, prompting the World Health Organization to establish the International Negotiating Body (INB). This body aims to revise the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005) and is tasked with drafting a pandemic treaty to enhance preparedness for future health crises. Throughout the negotiations, the WFPHA has been instrumental, providing insights and advocating for a treaty that underscores the health of all. The Federation champions a treaty that emphasizes equity, transparency in funding, and robust protections to ensure that all nations can effectively respond to future pandemics. The WFPHA continues to urge member states to put collective well-being ahead of commercial gains, advocating for a framework that not only prepares but also protects global health.
