Speaking ahead of the world health day to be marked on Saturday, Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki, said the government was keen on ensuring that all Kenyans are able to access quality healthcare.
"That's why WHO is so committed to ensuring good health for all". The recently launched strategies addressing hepatitis C and transgender Hhealthcare are just two examples of the government's commitment to profoundly improve the quality of life of previously marginalised groups within our society. Everyone everywhere has a right to benefit from health services they need without falling into poverty when using them.
Universal health coverage (UHC) is a flagship programme of WHO in the Region since 2014.
Mr Yeboah underscored human health as very paramount to development, adding that they would go the extra mile to meet the health needs of the people of Ghana.
The World Health Organization was established in 1948 and its main objective is to promote the health and wellbeing of the world's people.
Speaking on the theme, "Universal Health Coverage, Everyone, Everywhere and Maternal and child health the plight of the poor", Mr Yeboah, indicated that, quality health services must be delivered to every citizen in the country without discrimination.
Salman Khan's lawyer given security, after threat calls
It is unclear if the actor will be able to complete the shoot for Race 3 , one of his much-awaited upcoming movies. The state government moved the sessions court on 7 March 2017 challenging the trials court's order of acquittal.
Almost half of the WHO South-East Asia Region's population still lacks full coverage of essential health services.
However, UHC does not mean free coverage for all possible health interventions, regardless of the cost, as no country can provide all services free of charge on a sustainable basis.
Some countries have already made significant progress towards UHC.
In 2015, the world spent 7.3 trillion US dollars on health, representing close to 10 percent of global GDP. If countries are to achieve the SDG targets, one billion more people need to benefit from UHC by 2023. It said that people displaced within the borders of their own countries are often excluded from health services and have difficulties in accessing them due to social exclusion, financial constraints, as well as cultural and political barriers.
While the theme's basic objective is to provide every person in need with medical services, irrespective of their purchasing capacity, Indian statistics sadly reveal some terrible facts.
