World Health Day today

Directorate of Health Services, Kashmir (DHSK) on Saturday celebrated the World Health Day 2018, across all the health institutions of Kashmir Division.

Dr Khetrapal Singh said more efforts are needed to increase human resources for health, enhance skills of health workers and aid staff retention in the rural and hard-to-reach area, to ensure quality health services are available for everyone, everywhere.

"UHC is firmly based on the WHO constitution of 1948 declaring health a fundamental human right and on the Health for All agenda set by the Alma Ata declaration in 1978". The recently launched strategies addressing hepatitis C and transgender Hhealthcare are just two examples of the government's commitment to profoundly improve the quality of life of previously marginalised groups within our society. People were also apprised about the various health programmes and services being provided by the department.

According to a report in WHO, at least half of the world's population do not have full coverage of basic health services.

World Health Organization has called on African leaders to live up to the SDG pledges they made in 2015, and to commit to concrete actions.

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

She reiterated the determination of the Government of Uganda and partners to prioritize health noting that "you can not separate health from the economy and politics of the country."Echoing the same message, the WHO Country Representative in Uganda, Dr Yonas Tegegn referred to investment in health as the most profitable investment for any country in which everybody has a role to play".
