The seasons come and go – the statue of a man with river blindness & his son never fails to remind me why we are here @WHO. To find ways to make people healthier, and if necessary, to fight for their rights. I will miss the fantastic people who work here & whom I admire! @DrTedros pic.twitter.com/109Tcjaz30
