We are gearing up for the launch of this campaign, and need you 🔛 ! If you are interested in helping us:
🦠 The Covid-19 pandemic has been bringing the world to its knees for the last year and a half. Countries fought over personal protective equipment, hoarded vaccine doses 💉, and failed to showcase solidarity to get out of the pandemic.
Besides this short-sighted national approach, the World Health Organization 🏥 has failed to declare on time and lead a proper global response from the beginning, partly because of a lack of competencies, resulting in a lack of trust in the institution
This must change. We must give the WHO the tools to adequately deal with global health crises and a trusted leader backed by the people.
As such, Atlas will launch both:
🗳️ an electoral campaign to get a people-backed candidate at the head of one of the most important organizations in the world, and
✊ an activism campaign aimed at pushing the next WHO leader to champion more competencies. We believe the WHO should:
📌 have the power to prepare, prevent and lead global responses to health crises
📌 inspire trust through accountability, independence & transparency
📌 elect real leaders and champion open governance.
As you read this, our team is working to secure a candidate and finalize our policy proposals. We will update this page very shortly, so stay tuned!
