Today the 73th World Health Assembly opened On November 9th, local time, the resumed session of the 73rd

World Health Assembly opened in Geneva.

The conference was held online and will last until the 14th. The current World Health Assembly was held in May.

At that time, due to the impact of the epidemic, the duration of the meeting was shortened to two days, mainly to discuss the new crown pneumonia epidemic. 

After the resumption of the meeting, in addition to the epidemic, other health issues, WHO reform and financial issues will be discussed. 

In addition, this conference will review a draft resolution calling on member states to strictly abide by

International Health Regulations and strengthen their ability to respond to health emergencies such as new coronary pneumonia.

The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of the World Health Organization.

All member states of the World Health Organization send delegations to the meeting, focusing on the specific health agenda prepared by the Executive Committee. 

The main functions of the World Health Assembly are to determine WHO’s policies, appoint the Director-General, supervise fiscal policies, and review and approve planning budget plans. 

The World Health Assembly is held in Geneva, Switzerland every May.
