Resolutions on the health emergency in Ukraine at the 75th World Health Assembly
Map of the Month 05/2022
During the 75th World Health Assembly Ukraine and Russia introduced resolutions on 23 and 24 May that addressed the health emergency in Ukraine and in refugee-hosting countries. While the Ukrainian resolution, among other demands, clearly condemns the aggressor and calls on Russia to stop military attacks on health facilities, the Russian resolution makes no reference to the instigator of the war and the attacks on health infrastructure. Instead, it refers to the humanitarian situation “in and around Ukraine” blurring lines about the victims of the war of aggression.
