Decision (EU) 2021/1101 - adopted by the Council of the European Union during a meeting on 20 May 2021 - on the EU's position in the 74th session of the World Health Assembly.
This position comprises the support to the launch of negotiations for an international treaty on the fight against pandemics. The objective of this Council Decision is to ensure the participation of the European Union (EU) in the talks addressing matters falling within its competence, in view of the EU's possible accession to the treaty.
The proposal for an international treaty on pandemics emerged publicly in November 2020. The World Health Organisation's (WHO) World Health Assembly was scheduled to discuss the establishment of a process for a Framework Convention on Pandemic Preparedness and Response on 24 May 2021.
The Decision was published in the Official Journal on 6 July 2021.
