ONE in the media on COVID-19

Over the past month, ONE’s CEO and expert staff have been actively discussing the impact of COVID-19, lessons learned from the Ebola epidemic, and how the global community should respond.

ONE’s CEO Gayle Smith, an expert in responding to global health crises from her past roles in the Obama administration as a White House adviser and Administrator of the US Agency for International Development, is calling for global leadership and coordination. You can follow her on Twitter at @GayleSmith. Here are some media highlights:

She spoke with CNN to discuss the latest on the coronavirus pandemic and how we can defeat it globally.

Gayle also spoke with USA Today about the need for a coordinated global response:

“The fact that we’re interconnected and dependent, it isn’t a political position. It’s a statement of fact.”

And she spoke about how we can apply lessons learned from the Ebola outbreak.

ONE’s Africa Executive Director Edwin Ikhuoria (@edwindaniels1) joined CNBC Africa to explore possible plans for Africa amid this pandemic.

Our Executive Director, Global Policy, David McNair (@David_McNair) sets out the three things the G20 must do today to support Africa during COVID-19.
