Matshidiso Moeti : "We would encourage African countries to participate in finding a vaccine by participating in clinical trials. This is important in that the continent can contribute to the science and research of finding a vaccine. Secondly, I can only say the WHO is very much part of these coalitions that Ms. Kanza mentioned. There is also a role of advocacy which the WHO carries out at a global level. Our Director-General, for example, addresses the G7 countries, the G20 countries. These are fora in which people can make the correct decisions. I also think at the community level that citizens themselves can influence the decisions of their countries if they're aware of the potential for some of these commodities to be made available by actions of their countries. We need to continue to strive for this global solidarity even in the context of the geopolitical situations the world finds itself in today. Before COVID-19, international focus was on climate change, environmental protection and sustainability. It may be too soon to discuss it but what measures will be taken after the pandemic?

Matshidiso Moeti : "We would encourage African countries to participate in finding a vaccine by participating in clinical trials. This is important in that the continent can contribute to the science and research of finding a vaccine. Secondly, I can only say the WHO is very much part of these coalitions that Ms. Kanza mentioned. There is also a role of advocacy which the WHO carries out at a global level. Our Director-General, for example, addresses the G7 countries, the G20 countries. These are fora in which people can make the correct decisions. I also think at the community level that citizens themselves can influence the decisions of their countries if they're aware of the potential for some of these commodities to be made available by actions of their countries. We need to continue to strive for this global solidarity even in the context of the geopolitical situations the world finds itself in today. Before COVID-19, international focus was on climate change, environmental protection and sustainability. It may be too soon to discuss it but what measures will be taken after the pandemic?
