Statement on the status of negotiations on the draft WHO Pandemic Agreement and amendments to the International Health Regulations from Pandemic Action Network’s (PAN) Executive Director, Eloise Todd:

“Getting the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations and a WHO pandemic agreement over the line requires a Herculean push from negotiators in Geneva, but it will only be possible if they are given the space and direction from their capitals to reach consensus and allow the deal to be sealed. Too many lives have been lost, and too many livelihoods have been affected for these negotiations to fail. It is time for governments to pull out all the stops to land an historic deal in May for the good of humanity.”
