  Message on World CitiesDay

31 October 2014

With the decision by the United Nations General Assembly to establish World Cities Day, we now have an annual date on which to celebrate one of humankind’s greatest and most complex creations.

  Message on United Nations Day

24 October 2014

  Remarks at the Every Woman Every Child Event

 

New York, 25 September 2014

 

Thank you for joining me today.

Women’s and children’s health has always been a top priority for me.

I have seen in my country, my family and in my travels how much women and children suffer without proper health care. I myself was born without help of a midwife, just some senior, older women - grandmothers - must have helped my Mother.
