Description

In this unique, new conversation, I talk to professor Toby Green, and professor Reginald Oduor about the impact of lockdown policies on the global South. We also discuss the WHO treaty and its potential impact on the sovereignty of countries in the global South. Prof. Reginald Oduor raises several issues, including the ideology of treating the health of individuals, the environment, and everything equally, the problem of misinformation and disinformation, emergency use authorization of pharmaceutical products, centralization of medical care, and the imposition of a Western approach to disease management. They both argue that the treaty undermines the sovereignty of poorer countries and perpetuates neocolonialism. They criticize the elitism and narrow focus of Western experts and the imposition of Western medicine on the global South. The conversation concludes with a call for a more inclusive and equitable approach to global health.
