WHO chief Dr Tedros welcomes the recent blanket approval by the Syrian Arab Republic government for the UN for cross-line conveys, as well as measures to increase cross-border access.


WHO Director-General Dr Tedros gave a virtual press conference on response and needs for Syrian Arab Republic and Turkiye earthquakes. WHO is working across all affected areas and further scaling up across the country, including in the northwest. WHO immediately made available 16 million US dollars from the Contingency Fund for Emergencies for the response in both the Syrian Arab Republic and Turkiye.
