A Pandemic Treaty to Make the World Safer

5 Apr 2021 -  The World Health Organization (WHO) chief hailed support for an international pandemic treaty to shield the world from future health crises.
Twenty-five heads of government and international agencies have endorsed the treaty, which would signal high-level political action needed to protect the world from future health crises
The international community should work together “towards a new international treaty for pandemic preparedness and response” to build a more robust global health architecture that will protect future generations, world leaders said in a commentary published today in several newspapers around the world.
