The WHO has quietly allowed individual citizens to provide feedback on their proposed global pandemic treaty.
“As the Word Council for Health (WCH), our partners and allies have already sought to draw attention to, the World Health Organization (WHO) has proposed a global pandemic agreement that will give it undemocratic rights over sovereign people,” the WCH website states.
“WHO has quietly opened the floor for comments on the agreement but has provided little time to do so ahead of the first round of hearings scheduled for April 12 and 13.”
At the time of writing, the WHO’s website is overwhelmed by people from around the world voicing their disdain over the treaty.
It’s also important to note that the WHO is not asking people if they want a global pandemic treaty — they fully intend to have it in place by 2024 — they’re merely asking what it should include.
As reported by The Counter Signal, the WHO’s drafting of a global pandemic treaty would legally bind member states to the WHO’s International Health Regulations and allow the organization to dictate all future pandemic responses.
The WHO began drafting its treaty in December 2021 during a special session entitled “The World Together.”
The treaty is to be upheld by the WHO’s constitution, which under Article 19 “[provides] the World Health Assembly with the authority to adopt conventions or agreements on any matter within WHO’s competence.” [Emphasis added]
This authority was initially designed to pertain only to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control but is being expanded to include dictating Member States’ future pandemic responses.
Additionally, as pointed out by MP Leslyn Lewis, the treaty would also allow the WHO to determine what is a pandemic and when one is occurring, even over something non-viral like an obesity crisis.
This would effectively give the organization the authority to take control of member states’ healthcare systems whenever they feel necessary.
Overall, the global pandemic treaty would be a crushing blow to the sovereignty of countries like Canada.
The Committee met on March 1 and will meet again in August to continue drafting the treaty.
