WMA Council Resolution in support of the countries worst affected by the Covid-19 crisis

Adopted by the 217th WMA Council Session, Seoul (online), April 2021

The World Medical Association is deeply concerned to see the alarming and worsening Covid crisis in many countries worldwide, such as currently in India and Brazil. We recognise the huge challenges doctors and other healthcare professionals are facing in maintaining healthcare systems in such harrowing conditions. The WMA calls on the international community and governments to urgently prioritise support and aid to these the worst affected nations, including oxygen, drugs, vaccines, Personnal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other equipment as needed, and to strengthen healthcare system resilience in the face of future pandemics. The pandemic will not end until we tackle Covid in every nation and this is a time for global cooperation, solidarity and support for one another.
