    • As part of celebrations of the World Health Organization’s 70th anniversary in 2018, WHO staged a major health promotion event in Geneva yesterday, on the eve of the 71st World Health Assembly which started today.

      The free walk/run event, titled "Walk the Talk: The Health for All Challenge" was was the brainchild of WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The aim of the event was threefold - to raise awareness and profile of the work and goals of WHO and other global health agencies based in Geneva, highlighting the city’s role as a global health capital in improving global health; to engage World Health Assembly delegates, the UN family and the Geneva community in a celebration of WHO’s 70th birthday and to launch a global movement to promote health and particularly physical activity as part of a healthy sustainable future.

      It was so exciting to be part of this inaugural event! Here's some photos from the reception the evening before and the day of the event. Haile Gebrselassie, who is regarded universally as the greatest distance runner of all times helped inaugurate the event! Also, Graca Machel, the First Lady of Mozambique and South Africa gave a speech where she said "I hope this can become a simple example of what ordinary people can do. It’s not only up to governments to make a commitment to improving health."

      Here's to "Walking the Talk!"
