Prioritise Universal Health Coverage, provide quality healthcare to all

The address will be carried on ZIZ Radio (95.9, 96.1 and 96.9 FM) at 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 pm Saturday.

World Health Day is a global health awareness day which is celebrated under the sponsorship of World Health Organisation (WHO).

Morales stressed that Cuba has much to show to the world in terms of universal coverage, a theme that defines this year's campaign for the anniversary.

"Universal health coverage has a special relevance to people living in countries with acute and prolonged emergency situations". Patients who come in for treatment in the OPDs complain of lack of doctors claiming that their turn for checkup comes after several hours, and at times, even after a day.

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

Dr Jemima Asune, the Medical Officer in charge of Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at the Health facility noted that health providers were agents of promoting good health and indicated that as health workers, they were committed to rendering quality health care to grass roots, especially to mothers and children.

On the occasion of World Health Day, groups of people, organised by an insurance company took part in a rather unique initiative titled #JumpForHealth.

World Health Organization also notes that treatment and essential services have improved since for the first time, more than half of all people living with HIV in Africa (14 million) have access to life-saving HIV treatment.

According to him, the intent of UHC is to make health care services easily available to the citizens without any financial hardship. This is required to alleviate the financial costs associated with healthcare while making individual access to these services easier.

Domestic public financing is the predominant source to achieve universal health coverage.

Countries in the Region have committed to monitor who is not being covered by health services and why, and review annually progress on UHC and SDG3 health goal until 2030.

UHC is key to people's and nations' health and well-being. This it does by educating people and raising their consciousness about specific health issues they might have overlooked.
