Covid has been unforgiving on all of us. Omicron was preceded & will be succeeded by other viruses. Pointing fingers is not the response we need. Delivering jabs where it’s needed most should be our concern. We stand with our sisters & brothers of Africa. #WeShallOvercome.

Reject the ideas of masculinity that see violence and dominance as “strong” and “male”. This #16Days of Activism, let go of traditional gender roles that limit everyone and perpetuate violence against women and girls. #OrangeTheWorld

#ViolenceAgainstWomen and girls is a human rights violation that has been perpetuated for decades. It’s pervasive, but it’s not inevitable, unless we stay silent. #OrangeTheWorld #16Days

The longer we delay universal access to #vaccines the more variants we risk. We must work towards vaccine equity to end the #pandemic. I will be convening a High-Level Meeting on the theme, “Galvanizing Momentum on Universal Vaccination” on 13 January at #UNGA.
