@drharshvardhan
Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan reaffirmed government’s commitment to ensure that all people and communities have access to quality healthcare services, where and when they are required, without suffering financial hardship and move towards building a fairer, healthier world. He was addressing WHO South East Asia Regional Office today on the occasion of World Health Day Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that the theme selected for this year, building a fairer and healthier world for everyone’, could not have been more appropriate. 

He said, it falls on all of us to collectively make sure that our policies, programmes and actions are guided towards a healthier future for all. He said that the past year has brought home to us the need to ensure universal access to healthcare services, spanning from preventive to curative for each and every citizen, irrespective of their socio-economic status. WHO has issued the call to work together, collect reliable data, tackle inequities and act beyond borders. 

He said that India’s response to COVID-19 and its leadership role in enhancing global cooperation during these unprecedented times is an example of this approach. He highlighted that COVID-19 vaccines being made in India are being shared with over 80 countries through the Vaccine Maitri initiative. He said India’s actions reflect it’s ancient philosophy of ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam’ which exalts the entire world as one family. He said as the world increasingly embraces this philosophy, it will expedite the progress towards a fairer and healthier world.
