Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: (00:00)
We congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris, and we look forward to working with this administration very closely. We need to reimagine leadership built on mutual trust and mutual accountability to end the pandemic and address the fundamental inequalities that lie at the root of so many of the world’s problems.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: (00:29)
And we need to reimagine partnership, tear down our silos, and see our own efforts as connected to something bigger. It’s time for the world to heal from the ravages of this pandemic, and the geopolitical divisions that only drive us further into the chasm of unhealthier, unsafer, and unfairer future.
