World Health Day: 5 Food Safety Tips To Protect Yourself From Food Adulterants

Here in Malawi, World Health Day is an opportunity of the Ministry for Health and development partners to draw nationwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health.

Paying out-of-pocket for medicines is the leading cause of financial hardship from health care spending in this region, the Regional Director said. The day was first marked in 1949.

The spokesman said this year, the theme was "Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere" with the slogan "Health for All".

Dr Aceng singled out the Community Health Extension Workers strategy yet to be implemented but that has been well planned to contribute significantly to UHC.

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. People were also apprised about the various health programmes and services being provided by the department. But every country can do something to advance UHC.

More than 800 million people - around 12 per cent of the world's population - spends at least 10 per cent of their household budget to pay for healthcare.
