World Health Day – April 7

“Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere”

This year the World Health Organization (WHO) focuses health for all. The health is a human right but most of the time people can not keep their good health. The quality health care system is not reaching evenly everywhere. As per the stats, the needed health care services are not getting to half of the population in the world. The ‘Health For All’ strategy planned so many years ago during the Alma Ata Conference of WHO, but still, it is not achieved.

Poverty is the main reason for health problems and getting poor health services. The WHO took initiation to provide primary health care through the local governing bodies. The primary health care is the first health care system that can be contacted by people, family, and community for their preventive, promotive, rehabilitative or palliative care.

The health care workers in primary health care have important role in educating the people in prevention of disease, and promotion of the health condition. The should actively involve in policy making in the health promotion.

To make health for all a reality, we need individuals and communities who have access to high-quality health services so that they take care of their own health and the health of their families; skilled health workers providing quality, people-centered care; and policy-makers committed to investing in primary health care.

This is why WHO is focusing on universal health coverage for this year’s World Health Day, on 7 April.
