Amendments to the International Health Regulations were adopted at the 75th World Health Assembly on May 27, 2022. However, they have not been debated on or voted in by Parliament.
Concerns have been raised that Parliament has not discussed and will not have a say on the 307 proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations and the amendments to 5 Articles of the IHR.
There is an 18 month period during which the leader of every nation can reject the amendments under Article 61 of the International Health Regulations.
The deadline to reject (or approve – it’s up to you) the amendments (December 1, 2023) is rapidly approaching. NOW would be a good time for YOU to have a say!
Have your say – influence the outcome
This notice is directed to the individual leaders (Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and yes the Pope) of each and every one of the 194 nations that are members of the World Health Organization, as well as Liechtenstein and the Holy See, which are observer nations that have also chosen to be legally bound by the International Health Regulations.
Please be aware that December 1, 2023 is the deadline for each and every one of you to reject the amendments to the International Health Regulations that were adopted by the 75th World Health Assembly on May 27, 2022.
Under Article 61 of the current International Health Regulations, each of you has the authority to send a simple notification to the World Health Organization informing them of your decision to reject the amendments for YOUR nation.
The amendments in question were submitted on May 24, 2022 by the following nations: Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, the European Union and its Member States, Japan, Monaco, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The amendments were adopted just three days later on May 27, 2022, without any opportunity for public discussion, debate or comment.
Quite frankly, I wonder if the delegates from your nation have properly informed you of the ramifications of their actions.
I also wonder if you’ve been made aware of the existence of these amendments and the authority that you have to reject them.
I wish to remind you that, under Article 61 of the current International Health Regulations, you have the authority to reject the amendments that were adopted on May 27, 2022, but the deadline for you to take that official action is December 1, 2023.
I pray to God that you will receive this information and that you will possess the wisdom and exhibit the courage required to stand up to the World Health Organization in order to protect the rights and freedoms of the people of your nation.
I urge you to invoke your authority under Article 61 of the International Health Regulations and send an official letter to the World Health Organization informing them of your decision to reject the amendments that were adopted on May 27, 2022, and I urge you to take this action before the deadline on December 1, 2023.
