Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
We should all be encouraged by the presence here today of so many political leaders and key health partners.
Good health is at the centre of our vision of a more sustainable, inclusive, peaceful and prosperous future. It is both an outcome and a driver of progress.
Investments in health and, more broadly, in the continent’s human capital, are among the best steps we can take to ensure the success of the AU’s Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
