The World Health Organization (WHO) has a key role in coordinating global efforts in the face of the health emergency. For this reason, the Government of Spain regrets the decision of the Government of the United States of America to suspend funding to the Organization and trusts that this decision can be reversed in a short time.
The Government considers that the COVID-19 pandemic highlights the need to improve the governance of the global health system, a process that must be undertaken since the reinforcement of WHO. In this endeavor that appeals to the entire international community, Spain will collaborate closely with its partners in the European Union and with other indispensable allies, such as the United States, as well as with the United Nations system and other relevant actors in the public and private spheres. at the national, regional and international levels.
