Rebuilding better and fairer’: WHO 68th session of the Regional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean starts regular sessions

NNA – The WHO 68th session of the Regional Committee started its programme today with a presentation by Dr Ahmed Al-Mandhari, WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, on the 2020 Annual Report.

Dr Al-Mandhari outlined the main actions taken over the past two years in response to the COVID-19 pandemic as an exceptional example of solidarity, a modus operandi that should be adopted for all public health priorities.

“Together, we have mobilized more resources for the COVID-19 pandemic response than any other WHO region. We are not out of the woods yet with the pandemic. Our Region has already lost almost 300,000 people. The Delta variant is widespread, and we still have a lot to do in rolling out vaccination equitably across all countries. But the main message from this year’s Regional Committee is: it is time to start rebuilding better and fairer.”
