WHO, EU, UN and Africa

By Kristina - Foreningen exitwho (Norway)

In 2021 the OACPS[1] countries signed an agreement with the EU[2]. The OAPCS includes the countries Africa, Caribbean and the Pacific States, the agreement is presented as follows

“1. The Parties are committed to the rules-based international order with multilateralism as its key principle and the United Nations at its core. They shall promote international dialogue and seek multilateral solutions to drive global action forward.”

It is furthermore stated under Article 78 that

“2. The Parties shall take the necessary steps for the ratification of or accession to, as appropriate, the implementation and the domestication of relevant international treaties and conventions. “

This shows that the UN is in the highest degree not only influencing the EUs politics, as being implemented wherever EU can through agreements, but also through the WHO, which is UNs agency to promote health, therefore it may be problematic to avoid certain agreements the WHO presents.

These agreements makes it possible to set the signatory nations under pressure through withholding economic means and limiting subsidies. In the agreements it states that the parties shall, which is the strictest word in such agreements and means that the parties must enforce, comply and see, whatever is agreed upon, through. The newest signed EU agreements with the OACPS were signed in 2021 and may force Africa and other signatory nations to agree to UN`s PPPR (pandemic prevention preparedness and response), WHO's IHR and the treaty.

The complexity is that the african people are already in a complicated and deeply challenging situation when it comes to health, the reason being cholera and other communicable diseases[3]. For Africa the WHO agreements is a luxury they cannot afford and it is impossible to execute, when they are lacking basic infrastructure in a larger extent on the continent. Clean water[4] is a big problem, therefore these proposed agreements can be seen as a missed opportunity for Africa in comparison to what the possibilities of such agreements could represent and contribute with on the African continent.

When the EU agreements, with the UN at its core, were supposed to contribute to a higher living standard and infrastructure, so that they could realise the UN's sustainable development goals in a positive way. We now see what the UN's goals are worth, and since the agreement was signed in 2021, there has not been any positive implementations done to ease the chronic burdens in Africa. At the same time the WHO agreements has shown that they rather focus on fictive viruses and that the nations build out their own biological laboratories, which has an enormous potential to highly increase the burden of illnesses, not only in Africa, if there were to happen an accident through leakage of pathogens and the like they are researching in such laboratories.

Both when it comes to vaccines and vaccine passports is the WHO completely off mark, when the daily health and living conditions[5] africans are actually experiencing would be an even higher hindrance to be able to sustain basic primary needs, and also when it comes to see a doctor, go to a hospital and necessary care in time in comparison to the current situation would be drastically worse, as we saw under the pandemic.

At the same time vaccines against eventual, fictive pandemics are severely obfuscating the actual challenges and conditions the african countries are currently facing, when Africa is constantly struggling with epidemics[6]. This is what the WHO must focus on if they take diseases and human health seriously in any way. These agreements will also bind up a lot of economic resources the african countries actually needs to raise the living standard on the continent, so that Africa could reach at least a minimum standard in relation to the UN's human rights[7].

On the contrary, WHO wants Africa to send the few resources they have to Geneva. This shows yet again that this is absolutely not about health, but about power, money and globalisation in a world where the living standard and infrastructure are so diverse based on earlier colonisation, wars, occupation and poverty. Which is still an ongoing problem, see for instance Congo, Niger and so on.

Africa has about 1,5 billion people, the IHR and the pandemic treaty is making us see the starch contrast in the UNs and the WHOs way of seeing the way forward in comparison to how life is actually perceived and lived in the average day to day life in society overall. In africa people are experiencing constant health threats, when about 20% are chronically hungry, in accordance to WEF 46% of the world's population is lacking stabil access to clean water, there were 241 million infected with malaria[8] in 2020, we saw a 30% increase in cholera[9] in 2023, tuberculosis killed about 16 million people in the years 2000-2021[10], hiv and aids[11] is a continuous problem and so on.

Regarding malaria, the WHO promotes vaccines[12], but since earlier experiences with the WHO recommendations resulting in highly hazardous experiences, the African people will avoid this. For instance in 2014 when the women of Kenya was encouraged to get the Tetanus vaccine and ended up being sterilized

In Article 78

“3. The Parties shall endeavour to strengthen global governance and to support necessary reforms and the modernisation of multilateral institutions to make them more representative, responsive, effective, efficient, inclusive, transparent, democratic and accountable.”

In article 82 it states that the EU “shall”, (as observed throughout the document)

“3. The [EU Party] shall mobilise resources to support programmes in African, Caribbean and Pacific States and shall contribute to regional, inter-regional and intercontinental cooperation and initiatives aimed at strengthening cooperation between the Parties on issues of mutual interest and common concern.”

EU shall therefore mobilise resources in support of OACPS if they have mutual interests and concerns, but what when the interests and concerns are not unified in the way reality is perceived… EU with the UN are focusing on the climatic health and One Health, something that is in starch contrast to the challenges that is mentioned above.

At the same time it is stated clearly under Article 97 that

“Article 97 Other agreements or arrangements No treaty, convention, agreement or arrangement of any kind between one or more Member States of the European Union and one or more OACPS Members shall impede the implementation of this Agreement.”

Therefore it is fair to state that this agreement shall be realized without interference.

In Article 32 is states that

“4. The Parties shall strengthen capacity for emergency preparedness and response, to detect, prevent and respond to disease outbreaks and other health threats, such as antimicrobial resistance, taking a ‘one health’ approach. They agree to scale up support for national and regional health prevention, surveillance and monitoring systems.”

They will therefore strengthen the response and implement a "One-Health"[13] response whenever there is a reason to suspect disease or health threats.

Then it is fair to ask, what when there are constant epidemics and lacking opportunities to overcome these challenges when it comes to facing existing diseases[14] and lacking infrastructure[15]?

The EU and the WHO agreements do not focus on the actual dilemmas and health problems in Africa and the challenges the world at large is facing. It has been an enormous increase in cancer[16] and sudden deaths[17] in the west, this is handled by the WHO, the UN, the EU, the politicians and the mainstream media all over the world by ignoring the issue.

In the EU agreements with OACPS is presenting how the UN's sustainable development goals shall be in focus and through the UN's global governance shall enhance increased standard of living, exterminate poverty, diseases and so on. The WHO agreements are highly camouflaging and redirecting the focus in comparison to how the world's population is really experiencing life on earth, when these countries will not only get poorer and experience the increased challenges that this actually mean, but as we already are witnessing, the countries with higher living standards and a strong economy will also be depleted because of the green political shift[18] called UN's sustainable development goals.

It is hard to fathom the extent of what these agreements really represents, contain and what the consequences we really are going to face will be. WHO has its own definition of what health is, but if we look to Africa and other poorer nations, then the WHO, the EU and the UN is completely and totally failing its mandate. As we saw under the pandemic, the focus was not in the best interest of people and health, it was on the contrary a strong fear mongering culture pressed ahead by politicians, media and so on. Informed consent disappeared with the government demanding 60 years of secrecy and the trust will be absent for an equal amount of time!
