Anti-Vaccination movement: WHO debates it and find solutions

Por: Marina Meireles

The World Health Organization (WHO) debated what would happen with the citizens that decided not to take vaccines.

A delicate discussion had started on the previous evening after six delegates were diagnosed with Smallpox, which created a crisis in the committee. The delegates worked brilliantly trying to solve the problem, by asking their own governments for vaccines and help. Although some governments said “no” to the requests, for example, United States of America, which even with a huge stock of vaccines and a lot of hard work refused to sell their to other countries. Despite the “no’s”, the delegates successfully ended the crisis.

As a result of this crisis, on today’s debates, the delegates presented arguments and proposals about the vaccines and the anti-vaccination movement. It should be noticed that the countries that participated actively of the debate, were fast and really wanted to solve the problems and create new forms of combating epidemic crisis and the anti-vaccines movement. The committee finished their work papers and came with solutions that are bound to work. However, there was a discussion about cases about if citizens that decided to not to take vaccines should have access or not to healthcare if they were infected with the disease, which divided sides, but, fortunately, was solved.  In addition to this, the measures were developed thinking about different countries and how they could apply it to their governmental system. I would like to emphasize in particular a measure to create educational games about the topic, which in my vision will help kids to understand better what it’s going on and will also create a conversation with their parents about it. In conclusion, the committee is working well and will clearly bring good new measures in the end of debate.
