World Health Day 2018: Universal Health Care for all
World Health Day is celebrated to commit towards the provision of basic health facilities. Getting a proper medical treatment here often leaves the user with financial distress, prompting them to avoid receiving healthcare services until needed extremely.
WHO as an global body is saddled with the responsibility to help people around the world attain the highest possible standard of health.
Olawepo noted that Nigeria presently allocate only about 3-6 per cent of the national budget to the health sector, adding that the allocation was grossly inadequate. The day was first marked in 1949.
The theme of this year's World Health Day is Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere.
World Health Organization also notes that treatment and essential services have improved since for the first time, more than half of all people living with HIV in Africa (14 million) have access to life-saving HIV treatment.
UHC is feasible. Some countries have made great progress.

Ladipo frowned at the way and manner some health workers abuse patients, describing such attitude as inimical to the realisation of UHC.
Over 800 million people, nearly 12 percent of the world's population, spend at least 10 percent of their household budgets on health expenses for themselves, a sick child or other family member.
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.
The UN General Assembly on Dec 12 in 2012 adopted a resolution emphasising health as a critical element in global development. The basic objective is that every person who needs these services should get them and not only those who can pay them.
UHC includes the full spectrum of essential, quality health services, from health promotion to prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and palliative care.
"Over the past 70 years, there have been major advances in health and health technology, including life-saving medicines for diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, hypertension and diabetes".
