The place where Humanity’s stories of real people and events continue to be told together with Environmental concerns around the world. 

In the 21st Century and new Millennium, Nations great and small must – as never before – intently focus on the full spectrum of Humanitarian and Environmental concerns that affect every facet of life globally.    

 

Although the world has become smaller, more technologically advanced and interconnected, bigger and unprecedented challenges  are constant reminders that our world must be "secured, improved and sustained"  far into the future for all of Humanity including our planetary environment.

Regarding our world and the 

much needed 

WORK TO BE DONE,

“Partnerships”

ANNOUNCEMENT

WHO logo image 2a.jpg

"Good morning, good afternoon and good evening.  More cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the past 4 weeks than in the first six months of the pandemic.

Across Europe and North America, hospitals and ICU units are filling up or full.  This week there has been more good news from vaccine trials, which continues to give us hope of ending the pandemic. At the same time, we must continue to use the tools we have to interrupt the chains of transmission and save lives now.  

The COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the intimate relationship between humans, animals and the planet we share.  We cannot protect and promote human health without paying attention to the health of animals and the health of our environment.  That’s nowhere more true than in the case of antimicrobial resistance – one of the greatest health threats of our time.

Antimicrobial resistance may not seem as urgent as a pandemic, but it is just as dangerous.  It threatens to unwind a century of medical progress and leave us defenceless against infections that today can be treated easily.  Although antibiotics are a key focus, antimicrobial resistance also includes resistance to medicines for HIV, malaria, neglected tropical diseases and more.  

Wednesday marked the start of World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, an annual opportunity to raise awareness of antimicrobial resistance and encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to slow the development and spread of drug-resistant infections.

The slogan for 2020 is "Antimicrobials: handle with care".

For years, WHO has been working with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and the World Organisation for Animal Health, to address antimicrobial resistance and other health issues that arise from the interaction between humans and animals with a “One Health” approach.

Our three organizations – called the tripartiteconduct regular surveys to monitor country progress on antimicrobial resistance.  Our latest report, with data from 136 countries, shows that almost 90% of countries have national action plans for antimicrobial resistance, but only 20% have identified funding for implementation.  To help address that gap, together we have established a trust fund to support low- and middle-income countries to develop a truly One Health approach to addressing antimicrobial resistance.  Thanks to the governments of the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom, to date we have raised US $13 million, which will provide the first round of support to eleven countries.  Just this week we have launched the implementation in Indonesia.  Additional funds will be required for the next round of investment.

Today the tripartite is launching a new report that examines the international instruments that govern the use of antimicrobials – and identifies gaps in regulations for use of antimicrobials in humans, animals and plants.  Together, our three organizations will work to address these gaps and generate more global coherence in the use of antimicrobials.  One of the most important ways to do that is through increased political commitment at the highest levels of government.

That’s why today we are launching the One Health Global Leaders Group, which will bring together prominent leaders from government, the private sector and civil society organizations, to advocate for urgent action to combat the threat of antimicrobial resistance.  The Group will be co-chaired by Her Excellency Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister of Bangladesh, and Her Excellency Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados.  The Group will bring together key stakeholders in agriculture, health, development, food and feed production and other relevant areas to maintain urgency, public support, political momentum and visibility of the antimicrobial resistance challenge. . .

Opening remarks of the Secretary-General's appeal for global ceasefire - 23 March 2020

. . . This is crucial . . . 

To help create corridors for life-saving aid. To open precious windows for diplomacy.  To bring hope to places among the most vulnerable to COVID-19.  

 

Let us take inspiration from coalitions and dialogue slowly taking shape among rival parties in some parts to enable joint approaches to COVID-19.  But we need much more. 

End the sickness of war and fight the disease that is ravaging our world. 

It starts by stopping the fighting everywhere. Now. 

That is what our human family needs, now more than ever.

UN donates 250,000 face masks to NYC health workers

29 March 2020

On behalf of the city, the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, was on hand to receive 250,000 face masks donated by

the UN on Saturday, destined for health workers in the metropolis that is home to the

Organization’s Headquarters

In a statement, Mr. Guterres said that the face masks stored in United Nations facilities, were part of UN stocks, deemed surplus to requirements.  The UN chief praised medical professionals in New York City who, he said, have been working “courageously, selflessly, and tirelessly in response to the spread of COVID-19 across the boroughs,” in a reference to the five boroughs into which the City is administratively divided (Manhattan, Queens, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island).

Crucial Questions? . . .

Should any U.S. Citizen be lawlessly "shot and killed"

for asking a customer to wear a mask before

entering a business establishment?

Family & Friends mourn the tragic loss of 

Calvin Munerlyn

shot on May 1, 2020 at a store in Flint, Michigan - USA

 . . . and; is this "social distancing?"

 Crowds gathered at National Mall to watch Blue Angels, Thunderbirds flyover - May 2, 2020

 Answer to both Questions . . . "NO!"

 If "Law Enforcement" is willing to be masked

  in an effort to save thousands - even 

  millions of lives during this

 dangerous pandemic . . .

should "We the People" do the same by

following safer, prudent, public examples?!

During a press  conference  on  Monday, May 4, UM-Flint Public Safety Director, Ray Hall stands with a mask detailing the shooting which resulted in the death of Calvin Munerlyn.

HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II:  NO TIME FOR GEOPOLITICAL TURF BATTLES

HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II OF THE HASH

31 March  2020

The following text excerpt is  an Op-ed by His Majesty King Abdullah II, and presidents Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, Halimah Yacob of Singapore, Sahle-Work Zewde of Ethiopia and Lenín Moreno Garcés of Ecuador

"No time for geopolitical turf battles.  We need a global alliance to fight the pandemic . . . Our nations, societies and economies are slowing down, almost grinding to a halt in the face of a global, external threat that transcends borders, ethnicities, and creeds. Public life has come to a virtual standstill. But these unprecedented measures of social distancing will be hard to sustain over a long period of time. 

 

Nations are turning inward as they try to cope with the coronavirus pandemic, closing borders and imposing drastic executive measures in a retreat that risks leaving every country fending for itself. However, we can contain and counter COVID-19 more effectively by knocking down the barriers that hinder knowledge exchange and co-operation. 

Crises like these tend to bring out both the best and the worst in people. It is our responsibility as leaders to encourage the former and contain the latter. Our countries are at varying stages of the crisis but we all see and admire the strong spirit of solidarity and the many people who are passionately trying to save lives or keep indispensable services up and running. They give us hope and offer inspiration that our societies may not only weather this crisis but also grow stronger and more connected."
