URSULA RECEIVES BILL & MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION AGENDA 2030 17 GOALS AWARD
Ursula Von der Leyen :
« Honored to have received the Gates Foundation Goalkeepers2030 award.
I dedicate it to the millions of Europeans who showed solidarity during the pandemic.
Together, we are now building stronger health systems around the world for the future. »
« Dear Melinda, dear Bill,
I learned 3 big lessons.
We have established a transparency mechanism. This created trust. Confidence among member states that distribution is fair. Trust between our partners abroad. And confidence in equal treatment for businesses.
There was a worldwide lack of preparation. You, Bill, already predicted it […] in 2015. But we have learned our lesson and the global preparedness system is under construction.«
