World Federation of Public Health Associations Releases Constituency Statement at 74th World Health Assembly
May 26, 2021

The 74th World Health Assembly (WHA) convened on May 24, 2021 at tough times as the world is still facing a pandemic. A year passed with COVID-19 claiming and threatening more lives. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the World Health Organization’s Director General, in his opening address stressed this, “More cases have been reported so far this year than in the whole of 2020… globally, we remain in a fragile situation.”

 

Currently being held, virtually, until June 1, 2021, the 74th WHA is where global leaders are engaging in discussions that are expected to lead up to an agreement on a strategy to end the pandemic. In the WHA’s Committees A and B sessions, as well as the technical briefings, the WHO’s member states and non-state actors are discussing health-related Sustainable Development Goals and the WHO’s Triple Billion targets universal health coverage; health emergencies; and healthier populations.

 

As part of the work of its Coalition of International NGOs for Equity, in which GHD|EMPHNET is a member, the World Federation of Public Health Associations participated in a Committee A session urging the WHO’s Member States to enhance coordination and to work together on designing and adopting strategies to control the COVID-19 pandemic. The statement calls on the WHO and its member states to:

 

  • Ensure that treatments and vaccines are available to everyone everywhere. This requires establishing multidisciplinary engagement with local up to cross-borders social protection systems to reach all people.

 

  • Transform COVAX into a COVID-19 Solidarity Pooling Platform, enabling knowledge sharing as well as boosting production capacity under a public health-driven alliance of vaccine manufacturers, dedicated to research, development, manufacturing, and supply of high-quality, efficient, safe and sustainable vaccines and treatments.

 

  • Increase preparedness including health literacy while decreasing vulnerability to future pandemics through reducing health and social inequalities that have undermined the current interventions in controlling this pandemic.

 

  • Establish a clear partnership between the politicians and the health, social, and trade unions’ professionals to build public trust and engagement.

 

The Coalition was launched by the World Federation of Public Health Associations on February 11, 2021 as part of its service to public health during the pandemic. The Coalition aims to advocate for health and the economic well-being, with focus on the most vulnerable.
