On Wednesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the United States will pay the World Health Organization over $200 million that it reportedly owes the group.
Sec. Blinken reportedly made this announcement during a videoconference to the United Nations Security Council. In his remarks, Blinken said, “The United States will work with our partners across the globe to expand manufacturing and distribution capacity and to increase access, including to marginalized populations.” He added that the “United States will once again serve as a global health leader,” noting that the U.S. “believes that multilateralism, the United Nations, the World Health Organization are essential.”
Blinken said that while the COVID-19 crisis is still an “immediate challenge,” there is “a longer challenge, but equally vital, in establishing the strongest possible global health structure going forward.” He referred to news of a recent “Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Guinea,” saying there is “no time to waste.”
