WHO VS The Lancet Concurrencia de criterios Contraste de pareceres...


El exhaustivo informe de la comisión de «The Lancet» se detiene en la cuestión del contagio por aerosoles, que tanto tardó en reconocer la OMS. «Se está produciendo un cambio de paradigma en la forma en que vemos y abordamos la transmisión de enfermedades infecciosas respiratorias. La transmisión aérea, tanto en campos cercanos como lejanos, es una vía de exposición crucial, si no dominante, para el SARSCoV-2 y otros virus respiratorios», resalta el texto.

R.L. / LNE 15.9.2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the significant disparities that individuals and communities face in access to essential health services and, consequently, in disease outcomes. WHO's new guidelines for key populations take note of pandemic lessons and decades of disappointing results from well-intentioned infectious disease programmes. They recognise that successful infectious disease services must be relevant to everyday life, equitable, and non-stigmatising; engage the relevant communities (from the beginning, to avoid tokenism); and take a person-centred approach. Any public health service designed with these principles in mind will surely be cost-effective and, most importantly, ensure that global targets are reached and no one is left behind.

The Lancet

WHO welcomes the overarching recommendations of The Lancet COVID-19 Commission’s report on “Lessons for the future from the COVID-19 pandemic,” which align with our commitment to stronger global, regional and national pandemic preparedness, prevention, readiness and response. At the same time, there are several key omissions and misinterpretations in the report, not least regarding the public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC) and the speed and scope of WHO’s actions.
