Statement from José Luis Castro, President and CEO of Vital Strategies and Dr. Tom Frieden, President and CEO of Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies, on the inauguration of U.S. President Biden and Vice President Harris:
“Congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Harris. Today, President Biden and Vice President Harris take the reins during a global pandemic requiring one of the most complex responses in U.S. history. It’s encouraging to see the incoming Administration’s commitment to basing decisions on science, implementing a well-organized whole-of-government response, and communicating clearly and openly with the public. “As we mark the beginning of new leadership in the United States, we hope there’s increasing recognition that we’re all in this together. The more we work together, united in our fight against the virus, the safer we will all be.”
