I take this issue of disability inclusion extremely seriously. Securing equal rights for persons with disabilities is enshrined in the values of the @UN Charter and a core promise of the #GlobalGoals: to leave no one behind.
Health is a human right - and universal health coverage must be a top investment priority. To overcome #COVID19 and end AIDS, the world must stand in solidarity and share responsibility. #WorldAIDSDay
Violence against women & girls is a global emergency requiring urgent action at all levels, in all spaces & by all people. On Wednesday's International Day to End Violence against Women I reiterate my appeal to end this shadow pandemic once & for all. #16Days
The time of fossil fuel subsidies is over. Coal must be phased out. Carbon should be given a price. 2021 must be the year of a great leap towards carbon neutrality.
More than one quarter of the global population still lack basic sanitation. This is unacceptable - from a moral, economic & health standpoint. We must ensure everyone, everywhere has access to safe & hygienic sanitation services that provide privacy and dignity. #WorldToiletDay
Children and young people must be included in decisions that affect their future, from the long term impacts of the #COVID19 pandemic to the climate crisis. Adults must listen and work alongside them to create a better future. #WorldChildrensDay
Ending violence against women requires more than just intervening once it has happened. Prevention measures should be prioritized, including addressing social norms & power imbalances. Police & judicial systems must increase accountability for perpetrators & end impunity. #16Days
