Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya yesterday stressed on the need to build a resilient Global Supply Chain to enable equitable access to vaccines and medicines. Addressing the 75th session of World Health Assembly in Geneva, the Minister called for streamlining WHO's approval process for vaccines and therapeutics and strengthen WHO to build a more resilient global health security architecture. Mr Mandaviya reiterated India's commitment to build a more resilient global health security architecture.

The Minister noted that India believes that this year’s theme linking peace and health, is timely and pertinent because there can be no

sustainable development and universal health and wellbeing without peace.

At the session, India also raised dismay and concern over WHO’s recent exercise on all cause excess mortality, where country-specific authentic data published by the statutory authority has not been taken into account.

Mr Mandaviya conveyed the collective disappointment of the Central Council of Health and Family Welfare, a representative body of Health Ministers from all States of India, as they passed a unanimous resolution regarding the approach and methodology of WHO on excess mortality reports.
