Dr. Naima Al-Qusayr, representative of the World Health Organization in Egypt, praised the great efforts made by Egypt to address the Coronavirus pandemic, which required the solidarity of all Egyptian state agencies.
Al-Qusayr said, during the Ministry of Health and Population’s celebration of the “World Health Day”, that everyone worked to find a balance between the direct response to the pandemic with planning and strategically working to maintain the provision of all health services, especially the basic ones, to achieve the principle of everyone’s right to obtain health services. It is underpinned by the World Health Organization.
She explained that achieving universal health coverage is one of the most essential and crucial elements of the organization, which is clearly emphasized by the sustainable development goals, especially the goal which states: “Ensure that all Prime Time Zone and societies can use the enhanced, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services they need and of sufficient quality to be effective. This includes protection from financial risks, access to quality basic health care services, and access to safe, effective, high-quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.
Al-Qusayr said that Egypt has clearly identified universal health coverage as a priority goal for health sector reform in the 2030 Sustainable Development Plan in Egypt, which is based on three economic, social and environmental axes, based on Egypt’s firm belief in the importance of universal health care as pillars of the health system and the only way to reach “Health for all.”
