Kerala: Kerala Health Minister KK Shailaja was invited as a speaker to the United Nations Public Service Day on Tuesday (June 23) – the only one to be invited from India. The Public Service Day, which is celebrated on June 23, honours people who are risking their lives and providing public services amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The United Nations arranged for the virtual event to bring together public leaders and servants to discuss the importance of the continuation of public services during the pandemic times. “In doing so, it will examine the various approaches countries have taken during the crisis while looking at what measures they are undertaking to better mitigate such challenges in the future,” World Health Organisation (WHO) said in a statement.

“The event will also include an orchestral piece performed by the UN Orchestra and feature a video showcasing public servants in action developed from over 80 submissions received from public servants at national and local levels worldwide,” the statement added. Shailaja’s participation at the webinar is seen as the recognition of the model set by the state to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The speakers at the live video event also included António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations; Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, President of the General Assembly; HE Sahle-Work Zewde, President of Ethiopia; Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General, World Health Organisation; Liu Zhenmin, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs; Chin Young, Minister of Interior and Safety, Republic of Korea; Dr In-Jae Lee, Deputy Minister of the Interior and Safety, Republic of Korea; Jim Campbell, Director, Health Workforce Department WHO; Annette Kennedy, President of International Council of Nurses; and Rosa Pavenelli, General Secretary, Public Services International.
