IMA Neelagiri unit president Dr Vasantha Kumari said that World Health Day was being observed this year with the theme of "Universal health coverage: Everyone everywhere".

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday launched four new health care schemes on the occasion of World Health Day here.

The Portuguese diplomat remembered that the World Health Organization (WHO) was founded upon the principle that health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being.

The theme of this year's World Health Day is: Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere. WHO has calling on world leaders to ensure universal health coverage and commit to concrete steps to advance the health of all people. With a financial assistance of Rs 682 crore, we have initiated an universal eye health programme.

Countries that invest in UHC make a sound investment in their human capital.


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.

In Cuba the national celebration oin World Health Day was held in Sancti Spiritus.

However, Guterres noted that people around the world still lack vital health services.

The WHO's message is simple - people deserve access to healthcare without fearing financial hardships.

Throughout 2018, we aim to inspire, motivate and guide Universal Health Coverage (UHC) stakeholders to make commitments towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC). People were also apprised about the various health programmes and services being provided by the department. To his consideration, the universal health coverage is a political option, it is necessary to have vision, courage and long-term vision, but the reward is a fairer and healthier world for all.
