The WHO’s Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus says there should be a global shift to see healthcare and healthcare facilities as an investment instead of as a cost.
He says proper investment in healthcare systems would lead to a more focused and resilient response to fight future disease outbreaks.
Ghebreyesus says the focus should be placed on using healthcare systems to promote health and well-being, instead of only treating diseases.
