"It’s an outrage that any family has to choose between buying medicine and buying food; between poverty and illness.
That’s why WHO’s top priority is #HealthForAll. Ultimately, it is not just a moral imperative; it’s an economic imperative."-@DrTedros at #TEFForum2019 in 🇳🇬
"My asks for African leaders:
1⃣ Harness the power of health for economic growth. Countries that invest in building resilient health systems, based on strong #PrimaryHealthCare, make an investment that will pay a rich dividend for decades to come"-@DrTedros at #TEFForum2019 in 🇳🇬
"My asks for African leaders:
2⃣ Harness the power of innovation. Africa’s young and dynamic population is fertile ground for new ideas that can change the face of this continent. We must invest in those ideas"
