iPhone : Happy International #DayOfTheGirl!
When girls are able to stay in school & access health services equally, they can transform their future, which is essential for the health and well-being of families, communities and nations.
Lets speak up for #GenerationEquality!

iPhone : The number of #Ebola cases in #DRC has declined significantly over the last 3 weeks, from 120 cases in mid-April to just 14 cases last week. But it’s not over until it’s over. We will be vigilant until the end. Grateful for the selfless work of World Health Organization (WHO) colleagues and partners. twitter.com/ungeneva/statu…

iPhone : WHO and the The Global Fund have worked closely together since the Global Fund was set up in 2002 to help countries establish and sustain nationally-driven programmes to fight HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. We will continue to #StepUpTheFight together. bit.ly/2VtIFSm

iPhone : I warmly welcome commitments made by donors to fully finance the The Global Fund for the next 3 years. This is critical to prevent, diagnose & treat HIV, TB and malaria and to build better and stronger health systems. Together, we will #StepUpTheFight!

iPhone : Today is #WorldVisionDay. People who need eye care must be able to receive quality interventions without suffering financial hardship. Including eye care in national health plans & essential packages of care is an important part of every country’s journey towards #HealthForAll.

iPhone : Police, firefighters, and other emergency responders also have a critical role in preventing #suicide and connecting people to the necessary #mentalhealth or medical care that may be required. If you are an emergency responder, this is how you can help.

iPhone : #HealthWorkers can play an important role in supporting people who are at risk of suicide. Today on #WorldMentalHealthDay and every day, we call on all health workers to make sure they are looking out for signs of suicide among their patients.

iPhone : It’s #WorldMentalHealthDay. We also call on employers & managers to put in place measures to promote the good #mentalhealth of their employees in the workplace, & to have a plan for supporting colleagues who may be at risk of #suicide.

iPhone : This #WorldMentalHealthDay, we call on all teachers, professors and other educators to pay attention to students who may need help. A few words can make a world of difference. #SuicidePrevention

iPhone : Its #WorldMentalHealthDay.
Every #40seconds someone dies by #suicide.
If you are worried about someone, encourage them to seek help; let them know you care.
If youre struggling, talk to someone you trust; seek help. However hard things get, there is always hope. Never give up.

iPhone : Productive meeting with Peter Eriksson, International Development 🇸🇪. We agreed to join forces to support countries like 🇨🇩& 🇸🇴 to build their health systems & keep the world safe. I thanked the Minister for supporting the #SDG3 Global Action Plan to achieve #HealthForAll.

iPhone : Every death from AIDS, TB and malaria is one death too many. Every case is one case too many.
Now is not the time to lose focus.
Now is the time to finish what we started.
Now is the time to make history – together.
Now is the time to #StepUpTheFight!
