WFC issues statement of solidarity with WHO. April 28, 2020

April 28, 2020

STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY WITH THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION

At a time of significant threats to global public health, the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) stands in solidarity with World Health Organization (WHO) in its role of promoting health for all and in protecting population health in all nations.

WHO is the United Nations' specialist agency for health. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, we consider that the role of WHO has never been more important in coordinating a unified, global response to the spread of COVID-19. In countries with strong health systems and in those whose health systems are fragile, the role of WHO is critical in bringing together scientific, epidemiological and clinical experts to guide the response of Member States and minimize loss of life.

CORONAVIRUS: Advice for chiropractors April 17, 2020

April 17, 2020

PDF version

On March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). As of April 17, 2020, there have been over 2.075 million confirmed cases in 213 countries, areas or territories. There are currently over 140,000 confirmed deaths. Chiropractors are primary contact health care professionals and to protect themselves, their patients and their communities they must stay current with the latest scientific evidence, information and advice. In many countries around the world chiropractors have ceased providing direct, hands-on care to patients in response to governmental or health policy advice. The global situation regarding COVID-19 is evolving daily and advice may change over time pending developments and emerging scientific knowledge. This advice note is current as of April 17, 2020 and has been produced with advice and guidance from the WFC Research Committee and WFC Public Health Committee. 

Key messages

1. The WFC acknowledges the service of chiropractors around the world in contributing to the health of nations. We recognize that this is a challenging time and that we are in unprecedented territory with regard to the global outbreak and spread of COVID-19. As a worldwide community, the WFC understands that there are many questions being asked of chiropractors and that the situation varies from country to country. In order to support the global efforts of our fellow health professionals it is of critical importance that chiropractors communicate information to their patients and communities that is current, scientifically accurate and comes from authoritative sources.

2. Advice communicated to patients by chiropractors and their staff should be based on advice from WHO and official national public health agencies in their country.

WFC Public Health Committee urges heightened awareness of family and domestic violence amid COVID-19 pandemic.

With chiropractors increasingly engaged in telehealth and other consultations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the WFC’s Public Health Committee (PHC) is urging chiropractors to be on alert for signs of family and domestic violence experienced by patients seeking help for musculoskeletal concerns, such as back, neck and joint pains.

The call comes as United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres issued stark figures in his April 5, 2020 address [1]. He indicated that the rate of violence against women and girls had risen sharply following the imposition of lockdown measures during the pandemic. Dr Guterres pointed out that the threat of violence for many women and girls was largest in the very place where they should feel safest: in their own homes.
