President Joe Biden’s diplomats are negotiating a treaty with the World Health Organization to promote so-called global health equity. No one should receive better or faster medical care than residents of third world countries.If Biden forces this on, Americans will suffer and die needlessly.
Under the draft treaty presented in Geneva on February 1, the US would be obliged to hand over a whopping 20% of medical supplies, including diagnostic tests, antivirals and vaccines, to WHO for global distribution. .
Article 10 of the treaty stipulates that this will be done in “real time” and not after the needs of the United States have been met. The United States will no longer be able to rush treatment and vaccines to its own people before sending aid to other countries.
Grandma will have to wait longer for Paxlovid and other treatments. These commodities, now stockpiled and paid for by American taxpayers, are shipped to Nigeria, Uruguay, Afghanistan and other developing countries. decide what to get.

Supporters of the treaty have skewered America by depleting most of the pax lobid among Americans during the recent pandemic and monopolizing early access to the vaccine. should be secondary to achieving global equality.
Harvard health expert Jesse Bump said the treaty aims to redress “disgraceful and selfish behavior of wealthy nations during the COVID pandemic.”
Worse, the treaty suspends patent protection for new vaccines and treatments whenever the WHO declares a pandemic. will put the brakes on investing billions of dollars to develop
The treaty laments that “intellectual property” is a barrier to “scientific progress for all”. Quite the opposite. What would the world be like in 2021 if Moderna and Pfizer hadn’t rushed to develop a vaccine to profit?
This is the biggest scandal in American history
Article 19 requires the United States and other wealthy nations to pay a percentage of their GDP each year to the WHO Pandemic Fund.
WHO has already collected a good amount of money from the US, but unfortunately they are taking orders from China. Her WHO submission to China makes the treaty particularly dangerous.
Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus surrendered to China to cover up the initial coronavirus outbreak in January 2020. Ghebreyesus then bowed to China’s refusal to cooperate in investigating the source of the pandemic. He also barred Taiwan from observing COVID meetings on China’s orders. Anthony Fauci calls the pro-Chinese Ghebreyesus a friend. Fauci’s fingerprints are all over the treaty.
Even more worrisome is Biden’s acquiescence. When Gebreyesus’ term as executive director expired, Biden endorsed his re-election instead of proposing a candidate not in China’s pockets. To hell with America’s interests.

Now the proposed WHO treaty poses new dangers. This is a toxic brew of forfeiting demands for global health equity combined with behind-the-scenes instructions from China.
Defenders of the treaty argue that nothing will allow the WHO to intervene in how the US responds to the pandemic domestically. But the actual wording of Article 4 proves otherwise. It says each country will manage its own domestic health policies, provided that these policies “do no harm to their own citizens or to other countries.” You can drive your truck through that exception.
The draft treaty will enter into force “provisionally” before being considered by national parliaments. To thwart that constitutional impasse, 19 Republican senators said he introduced a bill on February 15 that would make the treaty non-binding unless the Senate ratifies it.

Biden, Fauci and other government bigwigs pushing for this treaty don’t have to worry about families being denied ventilators and medicine when a pandemic strikes. . But ordinary Americans need to speak loudly and reject the notion that they should settle for a lower standard of care in order to promote global health equity.
America is a generous country, but we must first secure America’s resources to meet America’s needs.
