World Health Day focuses on Universal Health Coverage

HealthforAll

World Health Day is celebrated every year on 7 April under the leadership of World Health Organisation (WHO) to create global health awareness.

Speaking on the theme, "Universal Health Coverage, Everyone, Everywhere and Maternal and child health the plight of the poor", Mr Yeboah, indicated that, quality health services must be delivered to every citizen in the country without discrimination.

True to the WHO's guiding principles of all-inclusive healthcare and the right to the highest possible level of health, the Ministry for Health in Malta continues to develop and improve the services it provides to the population.

For instance, the country has a robust health sector development plan that seeks to, among others goals "accelerate movement towards Universal Health Coverage with Essential health and related services needed for promotion of a healthy and productive life".

Trump to use military on US/Mexico border
The counter effect of Trump's hard stance on Mexico has also started getting reflected on the Mexican side of the border. But that came to a crashing halt this week, with Presidential tweets saying, "NO MORE DACA DEAL!" and "Daca is dead".

Moeti, who was represented by the WHO Country Representative, Dr. Wondi Alemu, said: "Today, I call on political leaders in Africa to live up to the SDG pledges they made in 2015, and to commit to concrete actions". This is required to alleviate the financial costs associated with healthcare while making individual access to these services easier.

He, however, identified strike by health workers as an impediment to the actualisation of Universal Health Coverage (UHC), saying "If workers are on strike the populace would not be able to receive the desired healthcare service".

UHC is not only about ensuring a minimum package of health services, but also about ensuring a progressive expansion of coverage of health services and financial protection as more resources become available.

A total of 62 health camps were organised across Kashmir division.

EPA's Pruitt says pay raises for aides 'should not have happened'
He is getting all this flak from Democrats because he has managed to cut back on environmental regulations, he argues. A White House official, asked for comment, said only that the two calls had taken place and would not elaborate.

Countries that invest in Universal Health Coverage (UHC) make a sound investment in their human capital.

World Health Day will shine a spotlight on the need for UHC - and the advantages it can bring.

This year, it is the 70th anniversary WHO.

While the theme's basic objective is to provide every person in need with medical services, irrespective of their purchasing capacity, Indian statistics sadly reveal some very bad facts. If countries are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) target, one billion more people need to benefit from Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2023.
