Proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR)

Map of the Month 02/2023

The 75th World Health Assembly decided to invite member states to submit proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations by 30 September 2022. This map depicts the States Parties that have proposed such amendments (four States Parties submitted proposals on behalf of other States). Multiple issues were addressed, e.g. information sharing, notification duties, access, the determination of a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) and access to health products, technology and know-how. Discussions and negotiations about the amendments started in February 2023.
