Due to the COVID-19 virus, all staff of the Campaign Coordination team are working from home. We have no idea when we will be able to meet in the same room again.
We want to send solidarity to everyone affected by this virus. Human rights include the right to health. We want to honour the health workers who are putting their lives on the line to care for those with this new virus and with the Ebola virus, as others have done with Zika and HIV. Viruses are part of our lives. Not everyone is equally at risk, but protecting ourselves and each other is everyone’s task.
We call on all our governments to follow the advice of the World Health Organization and protect everyone within their borders to the utmost.
In most countries, our health systems and healthcare workers have never received the resources or support they deserve. It is time to change that.
Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage are not just slogans!
