Pandemic Response and Challenges, an article by Melad Ahmadzai, CEO of Taleam Systems
We are more than one and a half years into the pandemic and the Covid-19 virus is holding steady. With all the efforts undertaken to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus up to now, unfortunately it appears that more work rests ahead as there are still challenges.
As I am writing this article, I think of two main reasons for why this global health crisis continues. Because of the rapid spread, it has affected millions of people who have now either died or are still suffering from the virus symptoms. People can have severe symptoms when the full dose of vaccine is not complete.
With UHC Day fast approaching, there needs to be action on pandemic response and solutions for the challenges, not only by the WHO but also in close coordination by member countries.
The UHC Day is a global call to action which is celebrated on 12,12,21 this year. I am one of the many members representing Taleam Systems from Canada on the UHC Day planning committee, and this year we hope to attract as many participants as possible.
Taleam Systems has developed innovative solutions for health clinics and we hope to share our knowledge with interested organizations.
As a way of our contributions during the pandemic, I would like to recommend five ways of supporting the UHC Day goals this year:
-Wealthy countries should contribute generously to the UHC Day goals
-Poor countries should voice their concerns and needs for consideration
-Businesses should step up on offer their innovative solutions
-Nonprofit organizations and academia should propose best practices
-Individuals should raise their voice on behalf of their country, organization or community
With your voice and generosity support, UHC Day will be a success. I hope to see all of your participation on social media and in your local community.
