World Health Day marked

World Health Day marked

Bhubaneswar: Chief minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday launched a number of health initiatives to give a boost to the existing health care system in the state on the occasion of World Health Day.

A person devoid of anger and frustration is also free from psychosomatic disorder, he added.

He urged the pachayats and zilla panchayats to generate awareness among public about it. WHO has calling on world leaders to ensure universal health coverage and commit to concrete steps to advance the health of all people.

The IMA also conducted blood donation camp at Anurag Hospital here as part of the World Health Day events.

"Health Is A Human Right". The World Health Day focuses on ensuring that all can access essential health services.

Some countries have already made significant progress towards universal health coverage. But half the world's population is still unable to obtain the health services they need.

What World Health Day can do?

Why Universal health coverage matters?

With the theme: "Universal Health Coverage", the outreach, which held at the Palace of the Oba of Ikejaland, had such medical services as dental and eye checks, consultations, diagnoses and tests, including free drugs to over 200 beneficiaries.

However, Guterres noted that people around the world still lack vital health services. "Their inclusion is of paramount importance to rights-based health systems and global health security".

He also highlighted, among other results, the elimination of immune-preventable diseases such as malaria and the certification and re-certification for two more years of the elimination of the mother-child vertical transmission of HIV and congenital syphilis.

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