World Health Worker Week


World Health Worker Week 2015 is being observed throughout the world from 5 to 11 April. World Health Worker Week is an opportunity to mobilize communities, partners, and policy makers in support of health workers. The health workers actually operates the main health system particularly in the rural areas. According to the World Health Organization, at least 83 countries lack sufficient health workforces to provide essential health services to their populations. It is estimated that globally at least 7.2 million doctors, nurses, and midwives are currently needed. In fact, the farming communities of the world need a sound health system for working effectively to attaining food and nutritional security for themselves as well as for the entire global population.
So, we would request the governments to increase budgetary allocation for training and development of the health workers and to strengthen health service providing system in every nook and corner of the country.
