We are closer than ever to overcoming some of the world’s most deadly and debilitating diseases. His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, is committed to ending preventable diseases that affect the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.
The Cycle of Poverty
The number of people living in extreme poverty has significantly reduced in the last thirty years – from one-third of the global population in 1990 to one-tenth today. But we have a lot of work to do to close that final gap as millions remain trapped in a cycle of poverty caused by preventable diseases, lack of access to clean water and vulnerability to climate change.
