WFPHA Statement on COVID-19 Pandemic






Professor Bettina Borisch talking about the statement.

Now is The Time!

COVID-19 makes visible all the inequalities and dysfunctions in our health and welfare systems. It shows that health is a common global good and not a commodity. Now is the time to support multilateralism, to strengthen international organization and their financing as well as governance, it is time to work on international health regulations again, it is time to explain Universal Health Coverage (UHC), it is time to Leave No One Behind, it is time to have health literacy promoted, it is time to see our common overarching interests. It is time to communicate openly and continuously to all of the public, to the leadership as well as to the different levels of politics. COVID-19 shows us that Public Health is core.

Prof. Bettina Borisch,

WFPHA Executive Director
