WHO Gets 20% Budget Increase to Help Address ‘Disease X’ and ‘Emergencies of all Kinds’

by Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D., Childrens Health Defense:

The World Health Organization’s 76th World Health Assembly wrapped up last week after approving a 20% budget increase to fight “pandemics fueled by climate change’ and “emergencies of all kinds.”

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) 76th World Health Assembly (WHA) wrapped up last week without members coming to a final agreement on the pandemic treaty or amendments to the international health regulations (IHR).

However, there were significant developments, including:

  • Approval by member states of a large budget increase for the WHO.
  • The launch of new fundraising initiatives.
  • Warnings about a future pandemic or deadly new “Disease X.”
  • A new collaboration between the WHO and the Rockefeller Foundation to promote new vaccines.

The new developments were in addition to those The Defender reported on last week, including the release of a new bureau’s text of the draft pandemic treaty and new proposals to limit free speech and personal liberties.

More pandemics coming — but they aren’t the only threat, WHO says

Addressing the WHA on May 22, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said his recent declaration to end the COVID-19 as a global health emergency is “not the end of COVID-19 as a global health threat.”

Tedros told WHA member states:

“The threat of another variant emerging that causes new surges of disease and death remains. And the threat of another pathogen emerging with even deadlier potential remains … When the next pandemic comes knocking — and it will — we must be ready to answer decisively, collectively and equitably.”

Future pandemics aren’t the only threat humanity faces or that the WHO must be ready to respond to, Tedros said.

“Pandemics are far from the only threat we face,” he said. “In a world of overlapping and converging crises, an effective architecture for health emergency preparedness and response must address emergencies of all kinds.”

This statement comes as the U.N. General Assembly is discussing its Pandemic Preparedness, Prevention and Response initiative, which will empower the U.N. secretary-general to quickly respond to “global shocks” related to pandemics, the climate, biological warfare, cyberspace or supply chain disruptions, an “event in outer space” or an “unforeseen black swan event.”

Tedros used this threat to urge the WHO member states to successfully complete negotiations regarding the pandemic treaty and IHR amendments, “so the world will never again have to face the devastation of a pandemic like COVID-19.”

“We cannot kick this can down the road,” he said. “If we do not make the changes that must be made, then who will? And if we do not make them now, then when?”
