Among the main challenges that humanity will have to face, according to the WHO, are poverty, hunger and climate change.

The director general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned this Monday that once the pandemic is over, the world will face “even greater challenges than before it began: poverty, hunger, inequality, non-communicable diseases, climate change. and more”.


“We cannot, we must not return to the same patterns of exploitation of production and consumption, the same contempt for the planet, the same cycle of panic and abandonment and the same divisive politics that fueled this pandemic,” said Ghebreyesus during the opening of the 10th World Conference on Health Promotion, held in Geneva.

In parallel, he stated that “it is time to stop thinking about health as a component of the economy and, instead, look at how the economy can support the social objective of Health for All, as an investment that is the basis of productive economies , resilient and inclusive “. “The covid-19 has demonstrated that when health is at risk, everything is at risk , ”  he clinched .
