The WHO cartel knows its in trouble...
Article by ex GAVI leader Nina Schwalbe proves it. Read the full article at FT.
There are a number of flags showing that the WHO cartel knows its in trouble as far as the proposed new pandemic treaty/accord and IHR amendments are concerned. One of them, is when its DG Tedros holds a presser and admits opponents are an issue. The other is articles like Nina’s that may have been difficult to write. How much can one say without making the situation look hopeless for the WHO and its stakeholders? Take a look and read it in full.
A few of Nina’s refreshing public interest takeaways that I took note of:
“The sense of urgency that gripped nations to be better prepared in future has been replaced by complacency.”
“The most recent round of treaty talks failed to bring a breakthrough in any of the areas of disagreement, signalling serious trouble ahead.”
“But as this process has played out, political will has ebbed away. Differences of opinion on thorny issues such as data sharing have hardened into near gridlock.”
“Within months of this bold first draft being released, however, its language was watered down.”
“The document is mired in platitudes and hands fundamental responsibility back to the very institutions that failed to respond last time.”
“Perhaps the last chance is the UN General Assembly’s High-Level Meeting on Pandemics in September. The political declaration posted this week under a Covid-era “silence procedure” — which gives limited time for member states to object — offers little hope.”
