Keynote speech by Dr Tedros
World Health Assembly 2019
World Health Organisation (WHO) "Colleagues, friends,
For 71 years, the world has come together in Geneva to discuss how we can create a healthier, safer, fairer world.
This year is no exception.
Over the course of the next 9 days, we will all do a lot of talking – maybe too much talking!
But we must also listen.
We must listen to each other.
We must listen to the voices of young people like Natasha, who will inherit the world we leave them.
And we must listen to the voices of those who are not here. Those who have no voice. Those who have been left behind. It is them we are here to serve." (Photo: UN Geneva/flickr, CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)
