World Health Day 2018 (#WorldHealthDay) marked

World Health Day 2018  was marked across the country today by organising different programmes. The day was celebrated with the theme ‘Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere’.

A rally was taken out here today to mark the day. A light was illuminated at Ghantaghar to raise awareness of the importance of health.

It is the fundamental right of the people to get health services and it is the duty of the government to provide health services to its citizens. However challenges remain.

“Health institutions continue to grapple with manpower shortage, short supply of medicines and lack of equipment. Likewise, the budget allocated by the government for the health sector is also too low. Healthcare should be one of the major agenda of the government,” said Kunja Joshi, health education administrator at National Health Education Information and Communication Centre.

The day is one of eight official global health campaigns marked by World Health Organisation. WHO has calling on world leaders to ensure universal health coverage and commit to concrete steps to advance the health of all people.
