Proud of the GOARN network & its frontline heroes. We have together responded to emergencies & built capacity around the globe for 20 years. No organization, no country can manage every emergency by themselves. Together we are stronger. #GOARN2020 #OneWorldOneResponse #IamGOARN twitter.com/WHOGOARN/statu…..
I'm devastated by the loss of my dear friend, colleague and mentor @PeteSalama, and heartbroken for his family. The global public health community has lost one of our best - a true leader who inspired with his curiosity, openness and professionalism. Pete is irreplaceable. twitter.com/WHO/status/122…..
Boots back on the ground in #DRC on a short but intense visit to Butembo, Mabalako, Mangina and Beni. Meeting with partners and the WHO team to see how we are driving forward public health operations in this #Ebola response. https://t.co/LcIywuMZsd
Following another senseless attack on civilians in eastern #DRC on Wednesday, #Ebola response operations were suspended in Beni and disrupted in Butembo today. This is a double tragedy for the civilians there, as gains against Ebola could be lost if this violence continues. twitter.com/DrTedros/statu…..
Preparedness is key. Vaccination of health workers against #Ebola continues in Rwanda. 500+ health & frontline workers have been vaccinated. Uganda & South Sudan also vaccinating, along with enhancing surveillance, diagnostic services, community engagement, clinical care & IPC. https://t.co/HLvx27IF48
Thank you #Kuwait 🇰🇼 for continued support to the Contingency Fund for Emergencies, which enables @WHO to respond quickly to health emergencies and save lives. In 2019 WHO responded within 48 hours to 27 emergencies using this critical funding mechanism. https://t.co/0VxEnx1vbm
In #DRC with our incredible #Ebola response colleagues working with partners and local health workers. Concrete progress in places like Mangina/Mabalako and Beni but still have active transmission in Mambasa, Mandima, Oicha and Komanda. https://t.co/cDeF2Pwrhf
On #InternationalWorkersDay, I’d like to recognize the outstanding job that health workers are doing on the front line of emergencies around the world to serve the vulnerable and keep the world safe. Thank you. https://t.co/vHk3z2MTKZ
