Countries attending World Health Organization meetings this week are discussing how to prepare for future epidemics, amid warnings that the world could be exposed to a future crisis.
Michael Ryan, the organization’s emergency director, said Wednesday that poor public health services and poor city administration exacerbate infectious diseases.
Speaking about the spread of aphids in non-infected areas, he said the spread of the virus was “directly related to our inability or unwillingness to manage these risks at the beginning of the epidemic generation cycle”.
The Govt crisis has exposed major deficiencies in global health systems, and countries acknowledged the need for many changes last year to better prepare the world for future threats.
As the World Health Organization (WHO) convenes this week, 194 member states are calling for progress in filling the gaps that have contributed to the global spread of the cove, which has claimed millions of lives. And destroyed economies.
Ryan also warned about holes in the supervisor.
And the number of Govt tests conducted by many countries around the world has been declining in recent months, which means that the virus is likely to spread in the absence of follow-up.
“We need data. We are losing the ability to predict what this epidemic will be and anticipate the appearance of another,” Ryan said.
In turn, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tetros Adonom Caprais, warned nations that there was no more time to waste.
“Developing emergency health preparedness, response and regression is an urgent priority as the epidemic reveals that the world was and is not yet ready,” he told the assembly.
Amendments to international health regulations are being considered, a set of legally binding international laws governing how nations respond to serious global health risks.
Negotiations are also underway for a new “legal instrument” (perhaps agreement) aimed at defining an integrated global approach to readiness and response.
The report on the new tool will be submitted to the World Health Organization for 2023, while the final decision will be submitted to the legislature for consideration in 2024.
“It is a legally binding tool that represents a pledge to future generations to ensure that the world can respond to the next epidemic or health emergency,” Tetros said.
The International Health Regulations (IHR), adopted in 2005, set out the rights and obligations of states to deal with contagious health emergencies.
It also defines a high risk level at the WHO level as a general emergency of international concern.
