Is the Biden Administration negotiating to sign over US sovereignty to the World Health Organization (WHO)?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Biden Admin Is Going To Sign Over US Sovereignty To WHO!
People are sharing an article by The Epoch Times, which claims that the Biden Administration is negotiating a deal to give WHO authority over US pandemic policies!
Here is an excerpt of the very long article, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
Truth : Biden Admin Is NOT Going To Sign Over US Sovereignty To WHO!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about the Biden Administration, and the WHO, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : WHO Member States Want To Better Prepare For Future Pandemics
This claim is based on WHO member state discussions in 2022, to amend existing International Health Regulations to strengthen the world’s preparedness against future global pandemics.
The International Health Regulations (IHR) were first adopted by member states in 1969, empowering the WHO to monitor global diseases. Those regulations have since been revised over the years, including in 2005 – after the SARS outbreak.
On 1 December 2021, world leaders agreed to kickstart the process to draft and negotiate an agreement or convention to “strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response“.
Fact #2 : Recommendations Came From WHO Member States
The proposed recommendations came from WHO member states, and not WHO itself. Among the more than 200 recommendations on how to better prepare for the next pandemic were:
- sharing of data and genomic sequences on emerging viruses
- a plan for equitable vaccine distribution
- a ban on wildlife markets
- incentives for reporting new viruses or variants
Fact #3 : Biden Administration Does Not Want A Binding Agreement
While the European Union proposed that the changes be adopted in the form of a new treaty, a measure backed by Britain, Indonesia and Kenya, among other countries.
Despite what people are claiming on social media, the United States has opposed a binding treaty. India and Brazil are similarly reluctant about adopting a treaty.
Fact #4 : Future WHO Agreement May Not Be Binding
The zero draft of the proposed WHO agreement on preparing for future pandemics was released on 1 February 2023, and was the focus of the article by The Epoch Times.
If you download and read the zero draft, you will realise that the WHO is still calling it a “convention, agreement, or other international instruments“, clearly showing that member countries have not decided whether they want it to be binding or otherwise.
In the third point noted on the very first page of the draft, it was even pointed out that this is just a draft that is being used for “commencing negotiations“, and that “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed“.
So it is ludicrous for anyone who read the first page of the zero draft to claim that the Biden Administration is planning to sign away US sovereignty to the WHO.
Fact #5 : Zero Draft Specifically Addressed Sovereignty
The zero draft of the proposed WHO agreement on preparing for future pandemics even addresses the issue of national sovereignty on Article 4 (3):
Anyone who read the zero draft can clearly see that even the “draft” has clarified that no country is signing over its national sovereignty to the WHO.

Fact #6 : WHO DG Dismissed Sovereignty Claim In May 2022
On May 17, 2022, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus dismissed the claim that countries signing up for this new agreement would be giving up their sovereignty.
Fact #6 : WHO Treaty Cannot Bypass US Senate Ratification
The claim that the Biden Administration is using the WHO treaty to bypass US senate ratification is nonsense.
The US Constitution gives the Senate the sole power to approve, by a two-thirds vote or more, all international treaties (binding agreements) negotiated by the executive branch.
In other words, the Biden Administration can negotiate any agreement it wants with other WHO member countries, but it must still seek ratification by the two-thirds of the US Senate.
