Coronavirus Global Response International Pledging Event - Dr Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust


Rolling out tests, treatments and vaccines globally is the only exit strategy from this crisis.

Developing, manufacturing and distributing those tools to everybody who needs them will require all countries to work together.

It’s what health workers need, what the public expects and what we all deserve.

I would like to thank President Ursula von der Leyen for your leadership and support every national leader in stepping up to collaborate in this crisis.

That’s why the Wellcome Trust is backing the Global Citizen’s campaign Global Goal, Unite our Future.
