USA announces further steps in connection with the withdrawal from WHO
Washington seeks new healthcare partners
US State Department comments on decision to withdraw from World Health Organization.
“The United States has long been the most generous provider of medical and humanitarian aid to people around the world. This aid is provided with the support of American taxpayers with reasonable expectations that it serves an effective purpose and reaches those who need it, the State Department said in a statement. – Unfortunately, the World Health Organization has performed extremely poorly, not only in the situation with COVID-19, but also in relation to other health crises in recent decades. In addition, the WHO refuses to carry out badly needed reforms, starting with demonstrating its independence from the Chinese Communist Party. “.
“When President Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from this organization, he made it clear that we would look for more reliable and transparent partners,” the ministry said..
The State Department recalls that this decision will take effect on July 6, 2021 and the US government is working to find partners who will take on the functions previously performed by WHO..
The statement outlines the next steps in the wake of the US withdrawal from WHO and the redirection of US resources. Thus, the balance of the planned contributions to WHO for the 2020 financial year will be used to partially cover other contributions to the UN structures..
In addition, by July 2021, the United States will reduce its engagement with WHO, including withdrawing Department of Health and Welfare staff from WHO headquarters, regional offices and country offices and assigning these experts to other positions. US participation in WHO technical meetings and events will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
