Statement: Civil society and community participation in the Pandemic Accord, November 2023

The work of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) responsible for drafting and negotiating a WHO Pandemic Accord is at a crucial moment. With 6 months remaining, it is critical that civil society and communities can bring their expertise and experience to this process in an effective and meaningful way.

Ahead of the resumed INB7 meeting on 4-6 December 2023, we call on Member States to ensure civil society and communities can attend and intervene (in an unrestricted and timely way) during all INB meetings going forward and call on WHO and Member States to provide the necessary support and assistance to enable civil society from the Global South to travel and contribute to the forthcoming meetings.
