Secretary-General's video message for "Global Goal: Unite For Our Future Campaign"

The COVID-19 pandemic is the quintessential global challenge — affecting every person, every economy and every corner of the globe.
 
The United Nations is mobilizing to save lives, ease suffering and recover better -- with a special focus on the world’s most vulnerable people and countries. 
 
More than ever, we need the World Health Organization, global unity and partnerships -- like the one between the European Commission and Global Citizen -- to ensure that new COVID-19 diagnostics, therapeutics and a people’s vaccine are safe, effective and affordable.
 
Most importantly, they need to be fully funded and immediately accessible to all.
 
No one is safe until everyone is safe. This will be a test of our values and humanity.
 
Thank you.
