“No-one is safe from COVID-19; no-one is safe until we are all safe from it. Even those who conquer the virus within their own borders remain prisoners within these borders until it is conquered everywhere.”

Frank-Walter Steinmeier

Federal President, Germany

“All pulling together – this must be the hallmark of the European Health Union. I believe this can be a test case for true global health compact. The need for leadership is clear and I believe the European Union must assume this responsibility.”

Ursula von der Leyen

President, European Commission

“All countries have signed up to Universal Health Coverage by 2030. But we cannot wait ten years. We need health systems that work, before we face an outbreak of something more contagious than COVID-19; more deadly; or both.”

Antonio Guterres

Secretary-General, United Nations (UN)

“The lesson is clear: a strong health system is a resilient health system. Health systems and preparedness are not only an investment in the future, they are the foundation of our response today.”

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Director-General, World Health Organization (WHO)

“The pandemic has brought the critical link between human health and economic growth to the front and center.”

Paul Hudson

CEO, Sanofi, France

“If we don’t address the concerns and fears we will not do ourselves a favor. In the end, it is about how technology can be advanced as well as how we can make healthcare more human.”

Bernd Montag

CEO, Siemens Healthineers, Germany

“Human rights must be at the heart of the response to the crisis.”

Winnie Byanyima

Executive Director, Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS)

“Safe and affordable vaccines will be especially critical to defeat this disease.”

Nanette Cocero

Global President of Pfizer Vaccines, Pfizer Inc., USA

“We really are now able to guide public health action on actual data. You can only do that if you have good partners.”

Lothar H. Wieler

President, Robert Koch Institute, Germany

“Governments of countries that are doing well during the pandemic have not only shown political leadership, but also have listened to scientists and followed their recommendations.”

Soumya Swaminathan

Chief Scientist, World Health Organization (WHO)

“COVID-19 has revealed a collective failure to take pandemic prevention, preparedness and response seriously and prioritize it accordingly.”

Victor Dzau 

President, National Academy of Medicine, USA

“Covax represents the world’s most significant effort to promote vaccine mulilateralism in the interest of ending the acute phase of the pandemic as quickly as possible.”

Richard Hatchett

CEO, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)

“The EU has openly committed to playing a more active role in global health.”

Marta Temido

Minister of Health, Portugal

“The EU is an incredibly important partner in multilateralism.”

Bernhard Schwartländer

Chief of Staff, World Health Organization (WHO)

“Academic collaboration is in place and is really a bridging partnership.”

Christian Drosten
