He further stated that there should be a better investment in public health worldwide backed up by governments and society to “ensure that our children and their children inherit a safer, more resilient and more sustainable world.”
“We must all learn the lessons the pandemic is teaching us,” Tedros said.This includes investment in preparedness capacities not just in the health sector but rather an “all-of-government and all of the society approach.”
