Notable speeches at the UNGA in 2019:

In a foretelling speech, WHO Director General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, “Ultimately health is a political choice. A choice that you have the power to make… Our vision is not health for some. It’s not health for most. It’s health for all. Poor and rich. Able and disabled. Old and young. Urban and rural. Citizen and refugee. Everyone everywhere. Because health is an end in itself, because it’s a fundamental right and also a means to prosperity.”
