"Keeping the world safe has been part of WHO’s mandate since our birth, and is part of our mission statement.
As part of our 5-year strategic plan, we have set a target to see 1 billion people better protected from health emergencies by 2023"
-@DrTedros at @WorldBank session
"A global pandemic could kill up to 80 million people and erase 5 percent of the global economy"

"Last year, @WHO and the @WorldBank co-founded the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board, an independent body to assess the world’s readiness for pandemics and other health emergencies"

"Pandemics and #AntimicrobialResistance pose different threats, but share similar features.
Both are driven by interactions between humans, animals and the environment"

"Managing & mitigating their risk depends on close collaboration between the human health, animal health & environment sectors, based on a 'One Health' approach.
This is the essence of the tripartite between WHO, @FAO and @OIEAnimalHealth"

"Countries with weak health systems are most vulnerable to the impacts of outbreaks, and most exposed to the spread of #AntimicrobialResistance.
The best defense against both threats is to invest in stronger health systems, especially #PrimaryHealthCare"

"#PrimaryHealthCare is essential both for preventing, detecting and responding to outbreaks, and for ensuring the appropriate use of antibiotics"
