Initiative to reform WHO's Emergency Preparedness

Map of the Month 01/2021

During the January 2021 executive board meeting of the WHO, 46 countries launched a draft decision, based on reports from various committees, to strengthen WHO’s global health emergency preparedness and response capacities. This is considered to be a central component of a WHO reform. The goal is to develop a resolution at the World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2021, the highest health-related global decision-making forum.

During all three sessions (43rd, 44th, 45th) 97 resolutions were passed of which 31 camp to the vote. 19 of them (around 60%) were adopted in favour of Germany. Which countries voted in line with Germany, which did not? The EU Member States, Ukraine, Australia, Japan and South Korea voted most commonly in line with Germany. Venezuela and Cameroon scarcest were in line with the German position. Several African countries frequently abstained from the vote.

The new composition of the UN Human Rights Council as of 1 January 2021

Map of the Month 10/2020

On 13 October, the UN General Assembly elected 15 new member states for a period of 3 years (2021-23) into the UN Human Rights Council that consists of 47-member states. Candidates are nominated by 5 regional groups that often do not allow for selection ("clean slate"). Only the Asia Pacific group allowed for selection: China was elected, but with an all-time low of 139 votes; with only 90 votes Saudi Arabia did not make it at all. Russia and Cuba are among the newly elected members as well.
