World Health Day 2021 : “Building a fairer, healthier world”

This World Health Day, the World Health Organization (WHO) are calling for action to eliminate health inequities, as part of a year-long global campaign to bring people together to build a fairer, healthier world. The campaign highlights 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.”

The places where we live, work and play may make it harder for some to reach their full health potential, while others thrive. Health inequities are not only unjust and unfair, but they also threaten the advances made to date, and have the potential to widen rather than narrow equity gaps.

This is not only unfair: it is preventable. That’s why the WHO are calling on leaders to ensure that everyone has living and working conditions that are conducive to good health.  At the same time the WHO urges leaders to monitor health inequities, and to ensure that all people are able to access quality health services when and where they need them. 

MP Rushton Paray urges the public to abide by the existing Covid-19 prevention regulations. With the rise of positive cases throughout the country, these regulations can save lives.
