The importance of World Health Day in 2021
“The greatest wealth is health”. This significant quote by the Roman poet Virgil depicts how health is extremely important in every individual’s lives. A person who has a healthy body, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally, they eventually become the richest person in the whole wide world. WHO acknowledges that last year’s pandemic outbreak cut short people’s access to recent health gains, above all pushing them into food insecurity and poverty. Even social, gender, and health insecurities occurred during the pandemic.
India went through the crisis of an unprecedented lockdown in 2020 that has again made its way back with the whooping number of positive cases. the Covid-19 outbreak led to mass migration, loss of livelihood, no access to basic necessities are among many other issues. Frontline workers and health sectors have always remained steadfast to help, and their tireless efforts need to be appreciated! Their hard work should never go wasted!
People need to take the seriousness of faltering to abide by the rules of maintaining hygiene, and social distancing can lead to dangerous situations. If this is not under control, India might experience adverse consequences to control the outspread of Covid-19.
How is WHO promoting “Building a fairer, healthier world for everyone”?
This World Health Day, WHO calls out and urges leaders to help eliminate health inequities from all around the globe. This 2021 campaign sheds light on WHO’s constitutional principle that “the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition.”
There is still the looming presence of inequality all around us. When many people get access to top-class health opportunities, some strive hard to get their minimal requirements fulfilled. This wide gap can be potential threats and chaos in societies. It is everyone’s responsibility to supervise that the gap is bridged and narrowed down to nil.
So let us take a pledge! To ensure safety, security, and good health for everyone around us by maintaining proper sanitation and social distancing. Address the need to reform health facilities and stay updated with ETPS Online.
