KEI Comments for 70th World Health Assembly Listening Session at DHHS

Today KEI attended the annual listening session at DHHS, when speakers are alotted no more than 1.5 minutes to speak on a specific agenda item, with no more than two agenda items per speaker. Our brief comments were focused on advancing the delinkage approach in the contexts of the GSPOA, CEWG, and cancer.

Zack Struver delivered comments on agenda items 13.4 (GSPOA) and 13.5 (CEWG), including some comment on the U.S. position on the HLP report, and Andrew Goldman delivered comments regarding the need for delegates to support a proposed cancer resolution that would require a feasibility study for a delinkage approach to cancer.

The comments are attached below.
