“Everybody should be able to participate in society and get the opportunity to thrive and live in dignity. To me, this is a basic value in life. Good health and good healthcare and support in case of illness and disability are essential for achieving this. Unfortunately, we still see a lot of inequities in the world related to health protection and access to quality and affordable care. Wemos is committed to realizing structural changes to tackle these inequities. I am very happy to contribute to that.”
