It also calls for sustainable recovery from Covid pandemic

The 109th International Labour Conference (ILC) has adopted a resolution with a call for timely, affordable and equitable access to Covid-19 vaccines for all people in all countries for the revitalization of the global economy and the world of work.

It also called for an inclusive, sustainable and resilient recovery from the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, reports UNB.

The “global call to action” was adopted after an intense negotiation in the Covid Response Committee of the ILC.

Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Bangladesh in Geneva Md Mustafizur Rahman chaired the Committee.

Bangladesh also led the Asia and Pacific Group in the negotiation as the coordinator and stressed the need for addressing the specific challenges of the region.

The resolution called for ensuring access to vaccines and personal protection equipment for workers, particularly to reduce the health risk of the health workers as well as salaries and allowances of all workers during the pandemic.

It also urged the International Labour Organization to play a more effective role in accelerating the support to States to address the increasing inequalities between the developed and the developing countries.

The resolution emphasized the expansion of the social safety net for recovery from the pandemic with a special focus on women, older persons and migrants. 

At the same time, it underscored the need for a gender-balanced, sustainable and people-centred post-pandemic recovery plan.
