Area of Effect: Research
Proposed by: Honeydewistania
The World Assembly,
Recognising that numerous vector species, such as mosquitos, ticks and fleas, are vectors for deadly diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, bubonic plague and many others, and most of these diseases are difficult to cure or do not have working vaccines;
Concerned that the diseases vectors spread can imperil the health of many;
Believing that reducing the populations of disease vectors is of utmost importance and in the interests of public health, hereby:
"vector" as a non-sapient macro-organism that can transmit harmful pathogens to a sapient organism;
"vector-spread pathogen" as a microorganism that can cause a disease, and is spread by vectors;
"vector-infested area" as an area wherein the population of vectors is likely to cause serious harm to sapient populations within that area via vector-spread pathogens;
Tasks member nations with effectively conducting and assembling research on vectors and vector-spread pathogens within their territory that is necessary to reducing the threats of said vectors and vector-spread pathogens to public health;
Member nations that have successfully eliminated or are close to eliminating the threats of vectors to public health are exempt from this mandate, but are encouraged to assist other member nations in their research;
Tasks the Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response Centre with, upon request, providing medical information relating to vector-spread pathogens to member nations;
Mandates that member nations publicly release any information in their possession that could potentially reduce vector populations or the spread of vector-spread pathogens for free, with necessary redactions to protect privacy or national security;
Requires that member nations create and promulgate effective and understandable guidelines for people and businesses in vector-infested areas to reduce the breeding of vectors or the spread of vector-spread pathogens;
Clarifies that only vectors or vector-spread pathogens that are the main cause(s) of designating an area as a vector-infested area are those that are to be targeted by this clause;
Urges member nations to further enact policies using the research obtained to reduce disease vectors;
Clarifies that this resolution does not discourage nor limit the usage of other legal and safe methods of reducing the threat of vectors.
