I often feel guilty spreading my message about good ergonomics, improving posture, easing strain and pain at your desk, sitting disease..
when I know full well it’s pretty much a first world problem and many millions- no billions- of people are suffering from life-threatening health issues related to their lack of access to healthcare 😟
So, seeing that this week sees us celebrating ‘World Health Day’ I thought I’d tune into our social consciences and turn our attention to those less fortunate in the health stakes than most of us.
Did you know
- that at least half of the world’s population don’t have access to the most basic health services, like a doctor or medicines? 😧
- Or that hundreds of millions of people are pushed into extreme poverty to pay for basic healthcare, so that they have to go without other basic necessities like food? 😨
‘Healthcare for All’ is the message from the World Health Organisation (WHO) this Saturday 7th April, which is World Health Day 2018. #HealthcareForAll
It’s about ensuring all people can get quality health services, where and when they need them, without suffering financial hardship.
Because no-one should have to choose between good health and other life necessities!
So, how Socially-minded is YOUR Conscience?
