World Health Day: FG, States Tasked To Address Inequality, Access To Coverage

As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the world 15 months after its outbreak, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has called on governments to build a fairer and healthier world for everyone through quality medical and pharmaceutical care.

Speaking on the World Health Day (WHD) marked today with the theme: ‘‘Building a fairer, healthier world’’ to highlight health inequities, WHO noted that the impact of the pandemic “has been harshest on communities, which were already vulnerable, who are more exposed to the disease, less likely to have access to quality healthcare services and more likely to experience adverse consequences as a result of measures implemented to contain the pandemic.”
