Countries pass up opportunity for a binding mechanism to ensure equitable access to meds

New text on WHO’s call to action on the COVID19 tech platform

Countries pass up opportunity for a binding mechanism to ensure equitable access to meds Geneva Health Files "Member states of World Health Organization are letting go of an opportunity to enforce binding mechanisms on sharing and pooling technology related to fighting COVID19 that would ensure equitable, affordable access to medicines, diagnostics and technologies. At the best of times, treaty-making is an uphill task, if not impossible, amongst more than 190 countries, but the pandemic could have been the imperative for countries to come together to challenge the status quo on the contentious and high-stakes game of access of medicines."
