At the webinar organized by the Belt and Road Institute in Sweden on April 29, he made a strong appeal for cooperation among all countries against the COVID-19 virus. In the name of science, he sharply refuted the politicization dividing nations in the struggle. He pointed out the importance of the existing cooperation within the WHO, for which he is an advisor, and the many initiatives in which the Karolinska Institute is taking part. Especially significant for the promotion of the Health Silk Road is the work on the UN Agenda 2030 at the president’s office at KI, to which he is the counselor. Also very important, is the international cooperation to minimize emergencies and disseminate antibiotic resistance, in which he had co-founded the ReAct Network on antimicrobial resistance; INRUD, the International Network for Rational Use of Drugs; as well as the Sino-Swedish IMPACT.
