Senior African academics issue statement of concern over proposed WHO pandemic treaty
This is a public statement by a group of African academics who are concerned by the proposed WHO pandemic treaty and IHR regulations, to be voted on in May. The changes would institutionalise the authority of the WHO to enforce through international law the measures implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic, which this group deems were unscientific and medically, socially and economically disastrous for Africa. They urge their governments to oppose the treaty and regulations change with all powers at their disposal.
