The World Health Organization (WHO) has unveiled a draft of its new plan to censor so-called “misinformation” and “disinformation” online.
The United Nations health agency recently released a zero draft of its international pandemic treaty.
The treaty will give the unelected global organization new powers to “tackle” anything that it deems to be “false, misleading, misinformation, or disinformation” if passed.

The WHO will essentially get new legally binding censorship powers if the treaty passes.
The health agency has been pushing for the passing of the treaty since December 2021.
Those drafting the treaty intend to present a final report to the World Health Assembly (WHA), the WHO’s decision-making body, in May 2024.
If adopted, the treaty will be legally binding under international law.
The WHO’s 194 member states (which represent 98% of all the countries in the world) would be required to comply with the treaty’s demands to target “misinformation.”
The zero draft is similar to previous versions of the treaty and the provisions related to misinformation are described in Article 17 (“Strengthening pandemic and public health literacy”).
This section of the treaty calls for member states to “tackle false, misleading, misinformation or disinformation, including through promotion of international cooperation.”
