An Azerbaijani official has claimed that its Non-Aligned Movement, under Azerbaijani leadership, has implemented a number of successful measures to counteract and mitigate the detrimental effects of the COVID-19 epidemic, according to Azernews.

“Health for peace and peace for health” was one of the topics he addressed during the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva.

He said, “The Non-Aligned Movement has taken several successful initiatives to combat the pandemic and address its negative impact since the outbreak of the pandemic under Azerbaijan’s chairmanship. It has actively marshaled the initiative of the international community with a wholesome spirit of solidarity, multilateralism, and cooperation to adopt measures to control the coronavirus pandemic and curtailing the negative impact of it.” 

It’s because of this disparity in the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine between rich and poor countries that the international community is unable to completely eliminate the pandemic.  According to Musayev, strengthening key health services is necessary to maintain the long-term viability of health systems and also to take appropriate measures against a pandemic.

Aside from other efforts that must be taken to provide universal access to health care, this must include the continuance of vaccination programs.

According to Teymur Musayev, an additional high-level summit of NAM member nations would be held in order to discuss the post-pandemic era and frame the movement’s position.

On May 22-28, 2022, Geneva, Switzerland, hosted the 75th World Health Assembly. There hasn’t been a Health Assembly ever since the COVID-19 epidemic began.
