Live from #WHS2019 with @DrTedros ⬇️

@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “Today, I’d like to talk about one of the scarcest commodities in global health - political will. We often say that we know what to do, and how to do it. If only there was political will. It’s the biggest deficit we face”-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “Each country has a different path towards #HealthForAll, & each is at a different point on that journey. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. But they all have the same destination, & they all have the same starting point – a political choice”-@DrTedros #WHS2019

WHO’s first global expert meeting discussed critical topics including data governance, ethical and equitable use of digital technologies, helping communities benefit from proven and cost-effective #DigitalHealth solutions

Infant and maternal mortality have both fallen"-@DrTedros at #RC69CPH

👉 #VaccinesWork
@EU_Commission @DrTedros @JunckerEU @EU_Health @UN_News_Centre “It is inexcusable that in a world as developed as ours, there are still children dying of diseases that should have been eradicated long ago.

@DrTedros @WHOSEARO @WHOWPRO @WHOAFRO @WHOEMRO @WHO_Europe @pahowho @FCTCofficial "We must promote #PrimaryHealthCare as the most powerful vehicle for delivering essential noncommunicable diseases and mental health services.

Today @DrTedros & Secretary-General @antonioguterres met Kavira Mwanamamba & a few other #Ebola patients who have conquered the disease and were leaving the Ebola Treatment Centre today. They will join the other 1,000 who have also conquered this disease.
UNSG @antonioguterres’s commitment to building a strong #PrimaryHealthCare system is so important to stopping diseases like #Ebola and managing others. A better health system means better #HealthForAll.
”Without the strong commitment and leadership of #DRC government and engagement of the community - we cannot end this #Ebola outbreak.
It’s important that we all work together to beat Ebola in DRC”-@DrTedros

Today is #IndigenousPeoplesDay.

Care provided in the community, by the community is the best way to achieve #HealthForAll.

This is how Budyari 🏥 is working with one of #Australia’s indigenous communities to make sure people get the care they need when they need it.
DYK: Too often Indigenous peoples do not have the same access to health care as other populations.

#PrimaryHealthCare is all about equity & making services available to everyone at all ages, right in their community.

Indigenous peoples have their own cultures, languages – and health needs. In #Australia, indigenous populations have a significantly lower life expectancy than non-indigenous populations. Prevention and health promotion in the community can help change this. #HealthForAll
