76th WHO MEETING " WE MUST EXERCISE THE NEXT PANDEMIC BEFORE WE ADOPT THE IHR "

Here we go again. Same scenario as in 2019. Then a pandemic was also practiced and 3 months later there was effectively a pandemic ( or at least that is what we were told ).


Co-Chair Joy Phumaphi :

"We propose that member states, along with other key stakeholders, conduct a simulation exercise later this year based on the draft agreement and draft amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) before they are finalized and adopted."

"A simulation exercise beforehand and rigorous monitoring and accountability after adoption are two ways to ensure that these important instruments live up to their potential and that we are ready for the next pandemic."
