The US will contribute $200 million to the WHO budget after returning to the organization

The money will be disbursed by the end of February as part of the US financial commitment as a WHO member.

Washington will contribute $200 million to the budget of the World Health Organization (WHO) by the end of the month. This was stated by the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

“The United States intends to pay WHO about $200 million by the end of the month. This is a key step in fulfilling our financial commitments as a WHO member,” Blinken said.

He added that the United States is committed to working with partners to reform the organization as well as support the global health agenda.

The Secretary of State also noted that each country must contribute to the fight against the pandemic.

The former American administration decided to leave WHO, but the new head of the White House, Joe Biden, returned the country to WHO.

The WHO said that almost 130 countries are left without COVID vaccines and called this a failed strategy.
