Due to the support of @eu_echo, @WHO was able to support the public health laboratory of #COVID19 in Aleppo with required testing kits, supplies and trainings, to enhance the national response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Excellent first meeting with @WHO@DrTedros. The U.S. is committed to working with @WHO & fellow member states to end the #COVID19 pandemic, increase vaccine access around the world through #COVAX, build back better, & promote a safer, healthier world.
My latest for @globeandmail "Slaughtered like chickens"
Ethiopia,Eritrea & Somalia denied their covert military alliance.
But the Globe's investigation has provided,for the 1st time, extensive details of civilian killings by Somalia soldiers in Tigray.
My thoughts are with the people affected by the explosion in Apiate, #Ghana. My deepest condolences go to those who have lost loved ones.
My brother, 🇬🇭 President @NAkufoAddo, @WHO will provide support so that people in need receive health assistance.
"The scale of food distributions has reached an all-time low in Tigray as food stocks and fuel have almost been entirely exhausted," OCHA said in its latest report Thursday.

All countries must enhance cross-sectoral collaboration to turn science into action that saves lives, incl. the public & private sectors & civil society. Together we can harness the power of science to promote health, keep the 🌍 safe & serve the vulnerable. #CongresoFuturo2022
Today's @WHO Presser:
"Omicron is causing hospitalizations + deaths, & even the less severe cases are inundating health facilities. The virus is circulating far too intensely with many still vulnerable. For many countries, the next few weeks remain really critical.." @DrTedros
#COVID19 has highlighted the link between energy & health from maintaining the vaccines cold chain to operating vital medical equipment. Access to electricity can mean the difference between life & death. That's why @WHO supports sustainable energy to achieve #HealthForAll. #ADSW
Thank you, Princess @dinamired, for your strong advocacy. Several countries, following @WHO recommendations, are demonstrating that with political commitment and investment in innovation and health systems, we can make #CervicalCancer history for all girls and women. twitter.com/dinamired/stat…
