"Health is the ultimate narrative of hope. And only through intentional partnerships and meaningful cooperation we can collectively address the global health challenges that we are facing and the systemic inequalities that my generation is living through."

"It’s not only about innovating and about making healthcare better and doing new things, but it’s about putting as much energy into bringing what is already there to those who really need it."

Bernd Montag
CEO, Siemens Healthineers

"We need to ensure equity in access and in outcomes, and we need to ensure coherence with the ecosystem, all of us. Not just between animal health and people’s health, but also between public and private sector."

Joy Phumaphi
Co-Chair, Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB)

"Looking back at our response to Covid-19 on both sides of the ocean, it is evident that we fell short despite the resources that were available to us."
