World Health Organization
Directed by Julie Vu
The technology for gene-editing is becoming more accessible outside of formal research labs. As a result, the possibility to develop bioweapons and experimental substances grows. Delegates should consider how the World Health Organization should balance the potential abuse and innovation that results from unregulated and often untrained biohackers.
Sexual and Reproductive Health and Education
A lack of comprehensive reproductive health education is correlated to many problems such as increases in sexually transmitted infections (STIs), unintended pregnancy and violence related to sex and gender. Delegates should consider how countries structure sexual health programs while thinking about the roles that traditional cultural norms and socioeconomic inequality play in their communities.
This is a double delegation committee.
