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
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “We still have a long way to go on the road to #HealthForAll. On current trends, up to 5 billion people will lack access to essential health services by 2030.”-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund "Our failure to invest in health systems doesn’t only leave individuals, families and communities at risk, it also leaves the world vulnerable to outbreaks and other health emergencies"-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019 #HealthForAll
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund "It is frankly difficult to understand why countries would invest so heavily in protecting their people from terrorist attacks, but not against the attack of a virus, which could be far more deadly, and far more damaging economically and socially"-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “Universal health coverage is not a choice a country makes once. It’s a choice that must be made every day, in every policy decision. Disease patterns are always changing, and so are the needs and demands of populations”-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “There is simply no better investment in health than #PrimaryHealthCare. That’s why WHO is calling on all countries to increase spending on primary health care by 1% of GDP by 2030, either through new investments, reallocation or both”-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019 #HealthForAll
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “In our fractured & divided world, health is one of the few areas in which international cooperation offers the opportunity for countries to work together for a common cause. Multilateral engagement is not only the smart option, it’s the only option”-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019
@DrTedros @WorldHealthSmt @BMG_Bund “We may never agree on which system of government is best, or which system of trade is best, or which economic system is best. But we can agree on this: health is not a privilege for the few. It is a right for everyone, everywhere”-@DrTedros at the #WHS2019 #HealthForAll
