World Health Day focuses on Universal Health Coverage

World Health Day focuses on Universal Health Coverageā€

Ladipo reaffirmed that this year's world health day was a unique opportunity for UHC2030 partners to engage in mobilising high-level attention and amplify the movement to accelerate progress toward UHC.

Ladipo further called for collaborative efforts of government and stakeholders to ensure improved access to quality healthcare services by the populace.

As the world celebrates the 70th International Health Day initiated by World Health Organisation (WHO) to create global health awareness, let us get some facts clear. The day was first marked in 1949.

Morales stressed that Cuba has much to show to the world in terms of universal coverage, a theme that defines this year's campaign for the anniversary.

"Health is a human right".

This eagle saw the 6-foot-4 "Big Maple" and thought good enough. "I guess the eagle knew I was Canadian". "It came for me". Paxton seemed to stay calm, and the eagle eventually landed on the ground and was picked up by its handler.

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) refers to the providing of essential healthcare services to a person while ensuring that the use of these does not expose the user to financial distress.

"Ultimately, universal health coverage is a political choice".

It is also the impetus behind the current organisation-wide drive to support countries in moving towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

Dr Aceng singled out the Community Health Extension Workers strategy yet to be implemented but that has been well planned to contribute significantly to UHC.

Nearly 100 million people are being pushed into extreme poverty, forced to survive on just $1.90 or less a day, because they have to pay for health services out of their own pockets. Patients who come in for treatment in the OPDs complain of lack of doctors claiming that their turn for checkup comes after several hours, and at times, even after a day.

He also threatened to kill the North American Free Trade Agreement, which is now being renegotiated with Mexico and Canada . Who then ignored subsequent generous Democratic inducements like $25 billion for the President's coveted border wall.

More than 800 million people (almost 12 per cent of the world's population) spend at least 10 per cent of their household budgets on health expenses for themselves, a sick child or other family member.

Meanwhile, the global "health economy" is growing faster than the global economy.

In addition, the country has a health sector monitoring and supervision framework, and an elaborate and well spread health infrastructure at all levels of national and local government administration. We all know that some resources and services like immunisation are available for free but they are not been enjoyed by the people because they don't even know about them.

Despite the strong foundation, the country still has a long way to go to achieve UHC as Dr Tumusime pointed out in reference to critical health indicators.
