U.S.
Will
Work
with
W.H.O.
on
Global
Virus
Response,
Fauci
Says

Dr.
Anthony
S.
Fauci,
the
nation’s
leading
infectious
disease
expert,
said
the
United
States
would
remain
in
the
World
Health
Organization
and
pledged
commitment
to
international
Covid-19
response.

“I
am
honored
to
announce
that
the
United
States
will
remain
a
member
of
the
World
Health
Organization.
Yesterday,
President
Biden
signed
letters
retracting
the
previous
administration’s
announcement
to
withdraw
from
the
organization.
And
those
letters
have
been
transmitted
to
the
secretary
general
of
the
United
Nations
and
to
you,
Dr.
Tedros,
my
dear
friend.
I
am
also
pleased
to
announce
today
that
the
United
States
plans
to
work
multilaterally
to
respond
to
and
recover
from
the
Covid-19
pandemic.
President
Biden
will
issue
a
directive,
a
directive
later
today,
which
will
include
the
intent
of
the
United
States
to
join
COVAX
and
support
the
ACT
Accelerator
to
advance
multilateral
efforts
for
Covid-19
vaccine,
therapeutic
and
diagnostic
distribution,
equitable
access
and
research
and
development.”
“This
is
a
good
day
for
W.H.O.
and
a
good
day
for
global
health.
The
role
of
the
United
States,
its
global
role,
is
very,
very
crucial,
and
I
send
my
deep
thanks
and
warm
congratulations
to
President
Biden
and
Vice
President
Harris,
and
to
the
American
people.
Thank
you,
President
Biden,
for
honoring
your
pledge
to
maintain
the
membership
of
the
United
States
in
W.H.O.”
