GENEVA (LifeSiteNews) — The member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) will next week negotiate the “zero draft” of an international “pandemic accord” that would highlight “global coordination” and “equity” and give the unelected global organization broader authority to dictate the pandemic policies of its 194 member states, including the U.S., the U.K., and Canada. 

The move will follow this week’s discussions on amendments to the WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR). Critics of the amendments proposed in recent months have raised serious concerns about protecting the sovereignty of member nations amid more globalized public health controls.

On Tuesday, The Epoch Times reported that the initial draft of the “pandemic accord” came after discussions between U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to “maximize the longstanding U.S.–WHO partnership, and to protect and promote the health of all people around the globe, including the American people.”

After these and other meetings, the WHO published its February 1, 2023, “zero draft” of the “WHO convention, agreement or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response,” also known as “WHO CA+.”

Consideration of the draft pandemic accord is slated to take place during the WHO Intergovernmental Negotiating Body’s fourth meeting on February 27.

If signed, it will grant the WHO pride of place in setting central standards for future pandemic responses in each of the organization’s member states.

Agenda items laid out in the 32-page document include “Global coordination, collaboration and cooperation,” “Whole-of-government and whole-of-society approaches at the national level,” and “One Health,” under which signatories would agree to mitigate “the drivers of pandemics, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, ecosystem degradation and increased risks at the human-animal-environment interface due to human activities.”

The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response. 

But it's not too late to do something about it. 

SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.

The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level. 

194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.

This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations. 

SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.

Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."

Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.

The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”

The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO. 

Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.

These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed. 

SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty

The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read. 

"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive. 

"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.

SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.

These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights. 

We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.

Sign the petition - speak up now!

The WHO CA+ also seeks to achieve “universal health coverage,” which it flagged “as a fundamental aspect of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through promoting health and well-being for all at all ages.”

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)s call for the global implementation of a spate of leftist agenda items ranging from “universal access” to “sexual and reproductive health,” to the “reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions” by the year 2030.

The WHO’s pandemic document states that its initiative was begun in December 2021 in response to the “catastrophic failure of the international community in showing solidarity and equity in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.”

The new “pandemic accord” allegedly “aims to achieve greater equity and effectiveness for pandemic prevention, preparedness and response through the fullest national and international cooperation.”

The February 1 document appears to reaffirm national sovereignty during pandemics, but makes a clear exception for countries whose policies are allegedly harmful.

According to the document, “in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law,” WHO member states retain “the sovereign right to determine and manage their approach to public health, notably pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and recovery of health systems, pursuant to their own policies and legislation, provided that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to their peoples and other countries.”

It remains to be seen how the WHO would in practice determine whether member states’ activities did or did not “cause damage to their peoples and other countries.”

During the COVID-19 outbreak, countries and states that bucked national and international guidelines by refusing to mandate masks, jabs, lockdown rules, etc., received widespread condemnation by left-wing media outlets and pundits who suggested those states and countries were perpetuating the spread of the virus by failing to conform to controversial and often harmful public health recommendations.

Public health physician and former WHO staff-member specializing in epidemic policy David Bell told The Epoch Times that, with its new pandemic accord, the WHO wants “to see a centralized, vaccine-and-medication-based response, and a very restrictive response in terms of controlling populations.” 

“They get to decide what is a health emergency, and they are putting in place a surveillance mechanism that will ensure that there are potential emergencies to declare,” he said.

Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law shared with The Epoch Times his concern that the WHO CA+ would be “fatally dangerous” to its signatories.

According to Boyle, the writers of the accord “deliberately drafted it to circumvent the power of the Senate to give its advice and consent to treaties, to provisionally bring it into force immediately upon signature.”

He argued that the Biden administration will treat the document, which will impact all U.S. officials from governors to health officials, as “an international executive agreement” that requires only his go-ahead without the input of the Congress. 

The WHO CA+ corresponds with the organization’s rule-making arm (the World Health Assembly)’s simultaneous initiative to implement global pandemic policies.

Boyle said “[e]ither one or both would set up a worldwide medical police state under the control of the WHO, and in particular WHO Director-General Tedros,” adding that WHO control of public health could extend “all the way down the pipe to your primary care physicians.”

Physician Meryl Nass backed up Boyle’s assessment and told the outlet that the WHO’s vaccination emphasis would bleed over into globalized jab requirements.

“What they’re also saying is they believe in equity, which means everybody in the world gets vaccinated, whether or not you need it, whether or not you’re already immune,” she said.

The WHO, HHS, and the World Bank didn’t immediately respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.

Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas, who is sponsoring a measure to once again strip American taxpayer dollars from the WHO, argued in a press release that “[f]unneling millions of taxpayer dollars to the corrupt World Health Organization that serves the Chinese Communist Party is a slap in the face to hardworking American families,” The Epoch Times pointed out,

“The WHO not only regularly promotes abortion and radical gender ideology but also praised China for their ‘leadership’ at the beginning of COVID-19 and has done nothing to hold the CCP accountable for the spread of COVID-19,” Roy said. “It is far past time for Congress to use its power of the purse to cut off US funding to this corrupt international body just like the Trump Administration did.”
