A coalition of doctors, scientists, lawyers, and civil rights advocacy organizations known as the World Council for Health (WCH) lambasted the World Health Organization’s (WHO) pandemic treaty as a “power grab” in a scathing open letter.
The WHO’s World Health Assembly had agreed last December during a special session to establish an “intergovernmental negotiating body (INB) to draft and negotiate a WHO convention, agreement, or other international instrument on pandemic prevention and response.”
But the WCH claimed the WHO, given its many failures during the COVID-19 pandemic and its operating outside democratic processes, “cannot be allowed to control the world’s health agenda, nor enforce bio surveillance.”
From the WCH letter:
The proposed WHO agreement is unnecessary, and is a threat to sovereignty and inalienable rights. It increases the WHO’s suffocating power to declare unjustified pandemics, impose dehumanizing lockdowns, and enforce expensive, unsafe, and ineffective treatments against the will of the people.
The WCH believes that the people have a right to participate in any agreement that affects their lives, livelihoods, and well-being. However, the WHO has not engaged in a process of public participation, which is evidence that its priority is capturing more power for itself and its corporate accomplices, than serving the interests of the people. Without an unbiased democratic process, any agreement by the WHO, acting via the United Nations, will be unlawful, illegitimate, and invalid.
Historically, the WHO leadership has failed the people. Among many examples, it approved the injurious H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine for a controversially declared pandemic. Equally, the WHO failed during the Covid-19 chapter as it encouraged lockdowns, suppressed early preventive treatments, and recommended product interventions that have proven to be neither safe nor effective.
