HE @ToyinSaraki leads High-Level Child Health and Malaria Forum at the United Nations General Assembly; #UNGA-73 she joins global health leaders to launch Access Challenge One by One: Target 2030 today, Tuesday 25th September 2018.
Toyin Saraki yesterday chaired the forum on Child Health and Malaria during the Access Challenge Universal Health Coverage Conference during the United Nations General Assembly. #UNGA-73
The forum was one of 4 key areas explored by the conference, which also focused on Maternal Health, non-communicable diseases & neglected tropical diseases. #UNGA-73
The four forums will combine to create a Universal Health Coverage Policy Report with key recommendations for Governments, global institutions and organisations to achieve health for all. #UNGA-73
The Child Health & Malaria panel consisted of Mr. Kevin Watkins, CEO, Save the Children UK; Dr. Kesete Admasu, CEO, RBM Partnership to EndMalaria; Dr. Katharina Lichtner, MD of the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation; #UNGA-73
Dr. Stefan Swartling Peterson, UNICEF, Chief of Health Section; & Dr. Henry Mwanyika, PATH, Digital Health Regional Director for Africa.
Following the Child Health and Malaria panel, Mrs Saraki commended the robust dialogue, commenting: #UNGA-73
“This high-level panel provided excellent insights and policy recommendations, which will be essential to deliver upon if we are to achieve Universal Health Coverage – and indeed go beyond access to quality and equitable healthcare for all.” #UNGA-73
“We identified the most effective methods of improving diagnosis & prevention of disease in low resource settings, the importance of African leadership in driving & directing domestic investment in child health & agreed on the elements of functioning primary healthcare systems.”
“Following the forum, I was delighted to spend some time discussing progress towards Universal Health Coverage and the barriers we face with Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the WHO, former President of Tanzania Jakaya Kikwete, ...#UNGA-73
...and Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa. All three are great champions for Universal Health Coverage – together we have a great urgency to achieve health for all.” #UNGA-73
Toyin Saraki further commented: “The Access Challenge One by One: Target 2030 agenda aims to ensure that every person in Africa has access to the basic package of health interventions that will allow her or him to thrive. #UNGA-73
Our goal is to encourage every leader in Africa to sign a Universal Health Access Declaration, which will guarantee that all Africans have access to basic health services. #UNGA-73
These include treatment for Neglected Tropical Diseases, skilled maternal care during pregnancy and community access to prevention (including immunization), and diagnosis and treatment.” -#UNGA-73
Toyin Saraki, who herself received the Speak Up Africa Award for Citizen Engagement at the United Nations General Assembly in 2016, also congratulated the awardees this year, ...#UNGA-73
...which included Agnes Binagwaho, former Minister of Health in Rwanda, Achim Steiner, Administrator - United Nations Development Programme, and Regional Director for WHO in Africa Dr Matshidiso Moeti. #UNGA-73
As the United Nations General Assembly continues in New York, Mrs Saraki is further scheduled to deliver high-level UN advocacy speeches. #UNGA-73

Thanks @DemolaRewaju for your atticism & clarity on political cum historical facts. Let me clear the air on my position. First, I didn’t strategize for the PDP & have never met the leadership of the party in any regard. I strategized for the future of Nigeria with the President.
It has neither ethno religious coloration nor political partisanship. All I told him before the election came to pass and all we deliberated on happened just as forecasted. He became a winner despite the loss of the election because he meant well for all & value good counsel.
After election I did gave free advices on how the PDP could build back the party in order to avoid having a unitary party system (an advocacy that brought about the creation of the APC Merger- of which I was involved in its strategic birth, when PDP became complacent).

As wonderful as this idea is, it won’t win the election. The battle ground geopolitical zone is not SS or SE but the SW. If @Atiku can pick a formidable influential youth from the SW (Male/Female) it will make the difference. NOI can always serve in the Admin with impact.
Also, he may need to allow the record reflect that he is only running this time to deliver Nigeria from the current darkness that envelopes her by deploying his resources and political structures to that effect as a legacy and would not seek a second term.
This way, the platitude of a promise by the leadership of the APC, void of integrity, on 2023 Presidential zoning to the SW will be neutralized and reinvigorated by a promise they can take to the bank and act upon should there be a breach.

When it comes to Money, Virtue is often defenestrated (virtually thrown out the window). The forth coming election would either be Won, Bought or Stolen. With the position of @inecnigeria in collusion with those bent on rigging the election with fictitious figures, this is clear.
90% (if not all) of the elections conducted under this “Regime” has been fraught with electoral fraud thus when opposition wins election it is declared inconclusive and rigged via an unconscionable re-run designed to disenfranchise the people. So a Win is out of the question.
Better phrased, a Win may not be enough under this Regime if you are not in Tahir favored books. The Wife of the president even raised an alarm over injustices within the President’s party let alone the wrath reserved for the opposition just to retain power by force.

Vengeance is a lazy form of Grief. ⛱
The simplest of tweets can be far more complicated than threads. This one right here can be a book yet barely scratch the surface of the expression. I’m simply saying, don’t confuse Vengeance with Justice the same way Anger must not be confused with Strength. ⛱
There are many people out there broken into pieces and seeking those that are whole to break just to get even with life. We must understand that sadness sometimes carry a whole lot of weight that often times attempt to stop you from breathing.

Your attitude and character is everything. If you can’t contain your hate and prejudices simply because of a tweet you read, then nothing else matters. You will always find anything you seek. If you want to be offended even a harmless emoji will set you ablaze. Watch it.
I really don’t know the motive of deploying hate towards people who see things differently. Changing a mind is different from having an argument. Persuasion takes patience, skill and insight, not force. You can’t insult me into supporting your sentiments. 🤔
You must never forget the next line of action when people undermine you. When they think they can walk over your Heart with their dirty feet, when they take your softness for weakness.

I’m sore disappointed in the development coming from @OfficialAPCNg primaries in Bauchi. Where @alouibrahim92 was rigged out despite the people’s support in huge numbers. Thugs were deployed and voters were harassed. Result sheets falsified in collusion with party officials. 😞
This is how APC is losing their great potentials. All those I knew from back in the days of great sacrifices for fo CPC/APC have been frustrated out of the party. The few that managed to keep the faith are now being disincentivized. Where’s their automatic ticket despite loyalty?
Is this what @MBuhari will be remembered for? All your loyal men/women ruined because of self centered party politics that ostracizes and impoverishes the people. Is the APC reserved for families and friends now? 2019 will be very interesting. This is really pathetic. @abellodam
