As Global Citizens, we're calling on leaders around the world to combat the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has on marginalized communities by committing funds to develop and deliver tests, treatments, and therapeutics. Because of this global effort, we will be more able to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 testing and treatment, regardless of their income or where they live."
"Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Concert" will be broadcast on Saturday, June 27th in the US on iHeartRadio's Hit Nation and NBC, as well as global platforms including Twitter and YouTube.
"The Concert" will follow "Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Summit," which invites world leaders, corporations and philanthropists who will reveal their commitments to help develop equitable distribution of COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines, as well as plans to rebuild communities that have been devastated by the pandemic.
