Matters Arising: World Council for Health General Assembly Meeting #64

During Matters Arising at General Assembly Meeting #64 on Monday, November 7, Shabnam Palesa Mohamed gave a quick update from the World Council for Health (WCH) Law & Activism Committee, which voted in a new co-chair this week.

In other Matters Arising this week:

  • The WCH released a statement on November 4 demanding transparency from the WHO regarding its secret IHR meetings.
  • We are very delighted that Dr Jackie Stone is not currently jailed in Zimbabwe. Dr Stone was in a sentencing hearing this week, and thanks to the excellent efforts of her team, her resilience, the demonstration on the day here in South Africa, and of course—international solidarity—two of the four were dropped.
  • The WCH Law & Activism Committee is working on a free speech campaign. The right to free speech is fundamental in all of our democracies.
  • If WCH partners have a representative that’d like to join one of our committees, including the Law & Activism Committee, please e-mail We’d love to work together with you in creating a better way for a better world!

As we look ahead to 2023, we would love to hear from you about where you feel World Council for Health can make the biggest impact in the year to come. We would like to know what you value most about the World Council for Health, how WCH has helped you, and how our team can do better in the future.
