World Health Day today

World Health Day Oxidants are produced naturally by our body as part of normal metabolism

On the occasion of World Health Day, which is observed across the globe on Saturday (April 7), Prime Minister Narendra Modi has wished the countrymen.

The Organization will maintain a high-profile focus on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) via series of events through 2018, starting on World Health Day on 7th April with global and local conversations about ways to achieve health for all. "Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere" is the theme of the celebration this year.

The World Health Organisation was founded on the principle that everyone in the world should be able to realise their right to the highest possible level of health.

Uganda is slowly but surely moving toward achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) which is the cornerstone for the attainment of Sustainable Development Goal 3 on the global development agenda. A particular health-related theme is chosen every year and varieties of programs related to it are organised on worldwide and national levels.

The UN General Assembly on Dec 12 in 2012 adopted a resolution emphasising health as a critical element in worldwide development.

"Universal health coverage is a political choice".

WHO or World Health Organisation was created to take care of the all the necessary needs and demands in the field of health.

This means ensuring that everyone, everywhere can access essential quality health services without facing financial hardship.

The resolution urged all countries to provide universal access to healthcare to their citizens without suffering from the consequences of financial hardship.

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.

Some 65 million are pushed into extreme poverty, mainly due to paying out-of-pocket for medicines, especially for non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, diabetes etc., and other common ailments.

"On the World Health Day, we must reflect on and resolve to work towards achieving UHC, to change the lives of millions of people across the Region and beyond".

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 bad facts.
