The preparation of a global treaty to combat pandemics such as COVID-19 fails

Geneva – The development of a global treaty to fight pandemics like the one COVID-19 you’re going to have to wait. After more than two years of negotiations, rich and poor countries have failed – for now – in their attempt to come up with a plan for how they could jointly respond to the next pandemic.

After the COVID-19 pandemic triggered once-unthinkable lockdowns, disrupted economies and killed millions of people, leaders of the World Health Organization (WHO) and from around the world they pledged to do better in the future. In 2021, member countries asked the UN health agency to oversee negotiations to determine how the world could better share scarce resources and prevent future viruses from spreading across the planet.

Roland Driece, co-chair of the WHO negotiating commission for the agreement, acknowledged on Friday that the countries had not been able to present a draft. The WHO hoped that the annual meeting of health ministers, which begins Monday in Geneva, would reach an agreement on the final draft of the treaty.
