UN COVID-19 Video: Message for “Galvanizing Momentum for Universal Vaccination” - UN Chief | United Nations


Related Videos On: Message for “Galvanizing Momentum for Universal Vaccination” - UN Chief | United Nations


Video message by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, to the opening segment of the High-Level Thematic Debate entitled “Galvanizing Momentum for Universal Vaccination”. "Mr. President of the General Assembly, Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, Let me begin by thanking the President of the General Assembly for convening this critical meeting focused on galvanizing momentum for universal vaccination. We have the tools and the know-how to end the COVID-19 pandemic this year. But we have a long way to go. We are nowhere near meeting the WHO [World Health Organization] goal to vaccinate 70 per cent of people in all countries by the middle of this year. Yes, over 10 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally. But this number masks the stark inequity in vaccine access. High-income countries have administered 13 times more doses per person than low-income countries. Eighty-five per cent of the people of Africa have not received a single vaccine dose. This inequity is a moral indictment of our times. It costs lives. It damages economies. And it gives the virus free reign to circulate unchecked and mutate, eroding hard-won gains and threatening the whole world. Ending the pandemic requires ensuring access to tests, vaccines and treatments for everyone, everywhere. In recent months, deliveries of COVID-19 vaccines have been steadily increasing. This month marked COVAX’s delivery of 1 billion doses to 92 low- and middle-income countries. But much more is needed. Galvanizing momentum means countries fulfilling and accelerating vaccine dose-sharing and donation commitments to COVAX with better quality of supply. It means manufacturers prioritizing and fulfilling vaccine contracts with COVAX, ensuring full transparency on monthly production and creating the conditions for the local or regional production of tests, vaccines and treatments. This includes pharmaceutical companies more rapidly sharing licences, know-how and technology. Regional production is critical for sustainable supply. It means significant investments in fragile health and economic infrastructure. It means donors and international financial institutions stepping up with the necessary support. And it means fighting the plague of vaccine misinformation. We have seen hopeful progress when supply is secured and predictable … when doses are donated with ample shelf-life … and when there is a deep understanding of what a country needs to accelerate vaccinations. Let’s build on that momentum together. In the coming days, weeks and months let us use every opportunity — through the G20, the World Health Assembly, the G7 and the General Assembly — to mobilize ambitious action to meet the WHO vaccination strategy targets and ensure no one is left behind. If we do it right, we won’t just end this pandemic, we will begin a truly meaningful effort to prevent future ones and build a safer, healthier world for all. Thank you."

Zikhona Madubela, a young entrepreneur in Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, is on a mission to persuade youth to wear masks and get a COVID vaccine. She meets scepticism, COVID fatigue and misinformation along the way. Zikhona listens carefully to young people’s concerns, then argues for the effectiveness and convenience of vaccines. As a successful business-person in the area, who runs a bakery in the township, she uses her influence and enthusiasm to help her peers. Just over a quarter of South Africa's 60 million population are fully vaccinated, and nearly 100,000 have died, out of almost 4 million COVID cases. The ‘Zwakala” campaign that Zikhona is supporting, is part of the “Verified” initiative, launched by the UN to promote life-saving COVID-19 information.

UN COVID-19 Video: Omicron Not a Mild Disease, Not the Time to Give Up - WHO Briefing | COVID-19 | United Nations

While Omicron infections on average “may be less severe”, WHO chief Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus warned that the “the narrative that it is a mild disease is misleading, hurts the overall response, and costs more lives,” as the variant continues to “sweep the world.” Speaking to reporters in Geneva today (18 Jan), Dr Tedros said there were more than 18 million reported cases last week. He said the number of deaths remains stable for the moment, but expressed concern about “the impact Omicron is having on already exhausted health workers and overburdened health systems.” He said while cases seem to have peaked in some countries giving hope that the worst of this latest wave is done with, “no country is out of the woods yet.” The WHO chief said he remained particularly concerned about many countries “that have low vaccination rates, as people are many times more at risk of severe illness and death if they are unvaccinated.” Dr Tedros underscored that Omicron is indeed causing hospitalizations and deaths, adding that “even the less severe cases are inundating health facilities.” He said, “The virus is circulating far too intensely with many still vulnerable. For many countries, the next few weeks remain really critical for health workers and health systems.” The WHO Director-General urged everyone to do their best to reduce risk of infection to help take pressure off the system. He said, “Now is not the time to give up and wave the white flag. We can still significantly reduce the impact of the current wave by sharing and using health tools effectively and implementing public health and social measures that we know work." WHO’s COVID-19 Technical lead, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, stressed the need not to give up on the strategy in place to combat the pandemic. She said, “We're hearing a lot of people suggest that Omicron is the last variant, that is that it's over after this. And that is not the case, because this virus is circulating at a very intense level around the world. You will see in our weekly epidemiologic update that will be published in a few hours that there's another 20 percent increase in cases in the last seven days, with almost 19 million cases that have been reported to us. And again, that's a true underestimate of what is actually circulating around. And the deaths are holding steady around 45,000 deaths per week, and that shouldn't be happening because we have tools at hand." WHO’s Chief Scientist, Dr Soumya Swaminathan, said there was currently no evidence that healthy children or healthy adolescents need boosters. She said WHO’s technical expert body tasked with making policy recommendations, SAGE, has been and will continue to meeting to consider the specific question of how countries should “think about giving boosters to their populations with a view to protecting people, with a view to reducing deaths." Asked about COVID-19 transmissions to animal, Dr Van Kerkhove said a number of species that can be infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19. She said there was a possibility for what is called a “reverse zoonosis”, in which the virus “goes from humans back to animals, and then it's possible for the animals to reinfect humans.” However, Dr Van Kerkhove said the risk “remains low,” noting that it was still an issue WHO is constantly considering. She noted that as the virus continues to circulate, it has the opportunity to infect people as well as animals, and highlighted the importance of having “better surveillance” to know “not only which animals are susceptible, but to track this in animals over time."

موضوع يوم الصحة العالمي لهذا العام هو "صحتي، حقي". ويؤكد اختيار هذا الموضوع من جديد ما أقرته منظمة الصحة العالمية منذ إنشائها في 7 نيسان/أبريل 1948 وهو أن الصحة حق لجميع الناس، وليست ضربا من الترف. ويُعترف بالحق في الصحة في دساتير 140 بلدا على الأقل. بيد أن هذا الحق مهدّد أو لا ينفذ في كثير من الأحيان في جميع أنحاء العالم. ويعني إعمال الحق في الصحة سنّ وتنفيذ قوانين تكفل حصول الناس على الخدمات الصحية التي يحتاجون إليها، أينما ومتى يحتاجون إليها، دون التعرض لضوائق مالية. ويعني معالجة الأسباب التي تؤدي إلى مرض الناس ووفاتهم. ويعني كذلك: الحصول على مياه الشرب المأمونة والهواء النقي والتغذية الجيدة؛ والسكن الجيد وظروف العمل والبيئة اللائقة؛ والتحرر من التمييز. وفي يوم الصحة العالمي لهذا العام، ندعو جميع الأفراد إلى معرفة حقوقهم الصحية والدعوة إلى استفادتهم واستفادة الجميع منها.

Este año, el tema del Día Mundial de la Salud es: «Mi salud, mi derecho». Con él, la OMS reafirma el compromiso que asumió cuando fue creada, el 7 de abril de 1948, de trabajar para que la salud sea un derecho para todos, y no un lujo. Ya hay 140 países, como mínimo, que recogen en sus constituciones el derecho a la salud. A pesar de ello, ese derecho no se satisface o corre peligro. Para hacerlo realidad, es preciso promulgar y aplicar leyes que velen por que las personas dispongan de los servicios de salud que necesitan, donde y cuando los necesitan, sin sufrir dificultades económicas por ello. Significa también luchar contra las causas de la enfermedad y la muerte, y ofrecer agua potable, aire limpio, una buena nutrición, una vivienda de calidad y unas condiciones laborales dignas, y prevenir la violencia y la discriminación. En el Día Mundial de la Salud de 2024, pedimos a todas las personas que sean conscientes de sus derechos en la esfera de la salud y que los defiendan, tanto para ellas como para los demás.

今年世界卫生日的主题是:“我的健康,我的权利”。这再次确认了世卫组织自1948年4月7日成立以来一直坚持的理念:健康是所有人的权利,而不是奢侈品。至少有140个国家在其宪法中承认健康权。然而,在全球范围内,这种权利往往得不到落实或受到威胁。实现健康权意味着通过并实施法律,确保人们能够在没有经济困难的情况下,随时随地获得他们需要的卫生服务。这意味着解决人们患病和死亡的原因。这意味着:安全饮用水、清洁空气和良好营养;优质住房和体面的工作和环境条件;以及免受歧视。值此世界卫生日之际,我们呼吁所有人了解并倡导自己和其他人的健康权利。

WHO Video: Всемирный день здоровья 2024 г. Мое здоровье – мое право.


Related Videos On: Всемирный день здоровья 2024 г. Мое здоровье – мое право.


В этом году тема Всемирного дня здоровья сформулирована как «мое здоровье – мое право». Она еще раз напоминает о принципе, который ВОЗ отстаивает с момента своего основания 7 апреля 1948 г.: здоровье – не привилегия, а право всех людей. Как минимум 140 стран признают право на здоровье в своих конституциях. Однако во многих точках планеты это право не реализуется или оказывается под угрозой. Для реализации права на здоровье нужно принимать и проводить в жизнь законы, которые гарантируют людям возможность получения необходимой медицинской помощи в любом месте, в любое время и без каких-либо финансовых трудностей. Для этого нужно также бороться с причинами заболеваемости и смертности. Это право также предполагает: безопасность питьевой воды, чистый воздух и качественное питание; качественное жилье, достойные условия труда и экологические условия; и свободу от дискриминации. В нынешний Всемирный день здоровья мы призываем всех людей: помните о праве на здоровье и отстаивайте его ради себя и всех остальных.
