World Health Day being observed

Shilpa ends the video with an ominous and cautionary piece of advice: "This World Health Day, treat your health as your wealth, or get ready to lose your wealth and your health!"

"So, the media have a role to play in Nigeria's drive to achieve Universal Health Coverage by 2030 through sensitisation of the masses to recognise their right to request and also use the health services that has been made available to them", the WHO Country Rep added. However, nearly 100 million people are being pushed into extreme poverty, forced to survive on just US$ 1.90 or less a day, because they have to pay for health services out of their own pockets.

Other initiatives which are already well underway include the improvements in services provided for people with diabetes and with cancer through the provision of new medicines, new equipment, new services, and an increase in capacity for research.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Wednesday called upon countries in its South-East Asia Region to step-up efforts towards universal health coverage, to provide quality health services to all people when and where they need them, without having to suffer financial hardship.

"Since then, average global life expectancy has expanded by 23 years", he continued, noting the eradication of smallpox and the dissipation of polio.

Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Director of South Asian Affairs of WHO Dr. Poonam Khetrapal Singh will also be participating in the event.

At Divisional Railway Hospital the Health Department of Waltair Division of East Coast Railway observed the day.

As the world celebrates the World Health Day today, World Health Organization (WHO) has stressed the need for everyone to access health services. Most of the Indians are unable to meet the high medical bills as they kept refraining from investing in medical insurance throughout their lives. Unfortunately, he said Taiwan was not able to help because it is barred from participating in worldwide organizations such as the World Health Organization.

However, Taiwan, an important partner in global health security, is calling for more support for its participation in the WHO and the 2018 WHA.

"We are talking to Member States and obviously Taiwan is not a Member State. We see what is happening".
