Mr. President,

Distinguished delegates,

A few weeks ago, I was in Bangladesh, at the border with Myanmar - witnessing the most rapid refugee exodus since the massive population movements of the mid-1990s.

It was a stark illustration of what happens when the root causes of conflict and violence are not addressed, and the relationship between a state and some of its people breaks down.

The result is a human tragedy on a dramatic scale.

Writing in 1901, William Osler, one of the founders of modern medicine, described pneumonia as “the captain of the men of death”. He was writing about the USA, where the disease was a major killer of children – and a source of fear for their parents. Pneumonia remains a “captain of the men of death”.
