Till: Socialdepartementet Stockholm 19 maj 2022


Hej,
Det förekommer uppgifter om att United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) har föreslagit ändringar till Världshälsoorganisationens (WHOs) föreskrifter, s.k. International Health Regulations, vilka kan komma att få konsekvenser för framtida global pandemihantering.
Konsekvenserna av föreslagna ändringar, om de godkänns, har sammanfattats av intresseorganisationen World Council for Health enligt vad som framgår i nedan utdrag.


Är det korrekt att ett sådant förslag om framtida pandemihantering som nämns ovan har presenterats för WHO? När och hur kommer förslaget i så fall att behandlas av Sverige? Vidare, är sammanfattningen som anges nedan en korrekt beskrivning av förslaget?
Hur ställer sig Socialdepartementet till förslaget?


Bästa hälsningar,
Bio-Medico Legala Nätverket

Summary of Selected Proposed Amendments to the IHR
The WHO intends to amend 13 IHR articles: 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 18, 48, 49, 53, 59
1. Increased surveillance: Under Article 5, the WHO will develop early warning criteria that
will allow it to establish a risk assessment for a member state, which means that it can use
the type of modeling, simulation, and predictions that exaggerated the risk from Covid-19
over two years ago. Once the WHO creates its assessment, it will communicate it to inter-
governmental organizations and other member states.
2. 48-hour deadline: Under Articles 6, 10, 11, and 13, a member state is given 48 hours to
respond to a WHO risk assessment and accept or reject on-site assistance. However, in
practice, this timeline can be reduced to hours, forcing it to comply or face international
disapproval lead by the WHO and potentially unfriendly member states.
3. Secret sources: Under Article 9, the WHO can rely on undisclosed sources for information
leading it to declare a public health emergency. Those sources could include Big Pharma,
WHO funders such as the Gates Foundation and the Gates-founded-and-funded GAVI
Alliance, as well as others seeking to monopolize power.
4. Weakened Sovereignty: Under Article 12, when the WHO receives undisclosed information
concerning a purported public health threat in a member state, the Director-General may
(not must) consult with the WHO Emergency Committee and the member state. However,
s/he can unilaterally declare a potential or actual public health emergency of international
concern. The Director General’s authority replaces national sovereign authority. This can
later be used to enforce sanctions on nations.
5. Rejecting the amendments: Under Article 59, after the amendments are adopted by the
World Health Assembly, a member state has six months to reject them. This means
November, this year. If the member state fails to act, it will be deemed to have accepted the
amendments in full. Any rejection or reservation received by the Director-General after the
expiry of that period shall have no force and effect.
