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.
