A speech given by Anna Lilja Gunnarsdóttir Special Envoy for Spinal Cord Injury and the Nervous System. WHO November 2020

Thank you. I am speaking on item 11.6 on the agenda.
Iceland thanks the Russian Federation for the leadership on this important topic and is pleased to support the resolution as a co-sponsor. We do so as we have, with many other partners over recent years, highlighted the heavy global burden of neurological conditions, being the second leading cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the world with estimated one in three people having a neurological disorder at some point in their lifetime.
