Remarks at the Africa Leadership Meeting on Investing Health

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.

Remarks at Launch of UN System Workplace Mental Health and Well-Being Strategy: “A Healthy Workforce for a Better World”

We are here to launch a very important undertaking to ensure the well-being of our staff -- our Organization’s greatest asset.
 
You are all aware that our work is becoming more challenging and more stressful.
 
Many staff in the field are facing increasingly dangerous operating environments.
 
Even at seemingly placid headquarters locations, work atmospheres can be hostile and problematic, including as a result of sexual harassment or abuses of power.
 
Given these realities, mental health takes on paramount importance.
