More than 100 former world leaders and public figures urged WHO member states to finalize a new “pandemic accord,” which the leaders said does not threaten nations’ sovereignty, but critics called the letter misleading because it doesn’t address the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations.

More than 100 former world leaders and public figures are urging the World Health Organization (WHO) member states to finalize a new “pandemic accord” in time for the 77th World Health Assembly, set to take place in Geneva, Switzerland, May 27-June 1.

In an open letter, dated March 20, the leaders wrote:

“A pandemic accord is critical to safeguard our collective future. Only a strong global pact on pandemics can protect future generations from a repeat of the COVID-19 crisis, which led to millions of deaths and caused widespread social and economic devastation.”
