Everyone, everywhere — Universal health coverage

HealthforAll

The World Heath Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on the 7 of April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization ( WHO ).

Along with the rest of the world, Nagaland also observes World Health Day 2018 on the theme "Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere".

Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, who is also a fitness influencer and the author of two healthy recipe cookbooks, addressed her fans and followers on the occasion of World Health Day today. Unlike what's expected, the government doesn't spend as much as it should for the development of Health sector.

"In Canada, Medicare is a source of pride and, more importantly, a system we can all count on, without risk or fear of financial hardship". The date, Dec 12, was declared as the UHC day.

Since then, the United Nations chief said, the world has made progress in health care with global life expectancy expanding by 23, the eradication of smallpox and polio on its way out.

Despite those gains, experts say quality remains as a big challenge.

The objective of UHC is to ensure people are protected from being pushed into poverty due to the cost of healthcare.

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.

He said the organization has become very progressive and vibrant, especially under the new Director General. "That's why WHO is so committed to ensuring good health for all". In high-income countries, government domestic funding as a share of current health expenditure rose from 66 to 70 percent, and in middle-income countries it rose from 48 to 51 percent. The actor said that she has completely removed refined sugar from her life, except on Sundays, which are her "cheat days".

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

Significant inequalities persist. Poorer people and those in rural areas have lower access than richer people, and those living in urban areas. As many as 55.5 million people across the region face financial hardship as a result of out-of-pocket health expenditure; and as many as 7.7 million are pushed into poverty due to these costs.

"Increasing access to quality and affordable essential medicines is also fundamental".
