- Tackling the future world health reforms taking Pandemics and Disease Contagion on the board
- The WHO’s Dependency on Member States and the Tracking of Diseases
Tackling the future world health reforms taking pandemics and disease contagion on the boardThe meaning of an epidemic is the “occurrence in a community or region of cases of an illness, specific health-related behavior, or other health-related events” that occur in excess of what is normally expected. COVID-19 pandemic has shown all of us that a sudden pandemic can result in severe damage on many aspects of social issues, from the country’s economy to the citizens’ psychological situation. Considering this situation, delegates working upon this topic will try to find concrete solutions for this issue.
The WHO’s dependency on member states and tackling of diseasesDespite being the responsible organ for providing universal healthcare, the World Health Organization is not a fully-independent organ, exactly opposite, dependent on the help of Member States and Non-Governmental Organizations. Plus, the limited budget that is around 2 billion dollars is not enough for the responsibilities given to this organization, also being lower than many university hospitals. Delegates will debate upon the dependence of WHO on other governmental or non-governmental organizations, and will also make sure that it will receive a budget that will cover the needs that are expected to be met.
