Critical Call for Attention: Alarming WHO International Health Regulations Amendments
While you may think the World Health Organization (WHO) which is headquartered out of Geneva in Switzerland is a world away from the shores of New Zealand, think again. As a member state of the WHO, New Zealand will be under the jurisdiction of the legally binding International Health Regulations (IHR) of 2005 and the alarming, proposed amendments unless we choose to opt out. Otherwise, we will be forced automatically to follow WHO law making which will dissolve New Zealand’s sovereign authority and the unalienable rights and freedoms of our people regarding health matters and freedom to travel.
International Health Regulations are like the global architecture (control?) of health and given the magnitude of the proposed amendments to the IHR it would be acceptable to assume that there would be a high level of public awareness, debate on the substantial amendments and some half decent media coverage of the situation in New Zealand given that it effects every man, woman and child in our country. Have we missed it? Or has it not had the coverage it seriously needs?
Given the significance of the IHR proposed amendments, New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out with Science (NZDSOS) penned a critical letter to MP’s to inform them of the alarming nature of the amendments and the implications the WHO power grab will have on our country and to ask what they intend to do to uphold and preserve our national identity.
