The Decade of Health is about the UK’s work in science and innovation to solve the world’s greatest health challenges.
Without a doubt, the greatest challenge the world faces today is COVID-19.
But to conquer COVID-19 here, we need to conquer it everywhere. It’s clear that diseases don’t respect borders and a health crisis anywhere is a health crisis everywhere. The only way to get our lives, communities and country back to a sense of normality will be to work alongside the rest of the world on solutions to the current pandemic. Make your voice heard by writing to your MP or tweeting them to share your voice on how important it is that the UK works with the rest of the world to conquer COVID-19.
Let’s conquer COVID-19 together and make this our Decade of Health.
