AHF: Pandemic Treaty Deadlock Is Not an Option

In Global Featured, News by Brian Shepherd

While pandemic treaty negotiations are happening largely behind closed doors, details have emerged indicating there are significant disagreements on specific provisions of the text. AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) urges negotiating countries to avoid deadlock and keep the overarching objective at the forefront – the world must find a way to collaborate and ensure global public health security.

“Countries must put their differences aside and not lose sight of the big picture – this is our only chance to fundamentally redefine the global public health framework. If world leaders commit to negotiating in the spirit of transparency, accountability, and collaboration, the negotiations can focus on the core issues of global public health security, instead of squabbling over which countries will be the winners and losers under this new treaty. Endless debate and inaction will cost us many times over if we fail to compromise and move forward together,” said AHF President Michael Weinstein.
