Chisinau, 7 April /MOLDPRES/ - Acting Prime Minister Aureliu Ciocoi today addressed a message on the World Health Day, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.
The message reads:
„Today, the international community marks the World Health Day. Being in the full swing of the fight against the pandemic, more than ever, we are aware of the importance of the responsibility of each of us for the personal health and of the beloved ones, as well as of the role of the medical system in the society through the need to strengthen the capacities in this field.
I take advantage of this occasion to express deep gratitude to all employees of the national health system. Especially to those involved in the treatment of the Covid-19 patients, who have been working in time trial, in not at all easy conditions, continuously fighting for saving the lives of the patients hit by this infection.
At the same time, the government highly appreciates the considerable and extremely valuable support provided by our international partners in combating the pandemic. Given that the pandemic crisis hit all states of the world, its consequences being felt especially by the vulnerable communities, the United Nations this year established the title of the World Health Day: Building a fairer and healthier world.
This fact is meant to highlight the need of directing the public policies to providing equal access to qualitative health services for the vulnerable groups.
The most important conclusion, which we are obliged to ascertain in full swing of the pandemic – orienting investments in the modernization of the health and education systems, represents the solid foundation for ensuring, for a medium-and long term, a prosperous state with a well-trained and sound society. I am united with the key message of this year: the health is a right, not at all a privilege.
At the same time, I call on the citizens of our country to be everybody aware of the responsibility which we bear together on this period of ordeal, understanding that each of us can contribute to the diminution of the spread of the infection through the observance of the sanitary norms: wearing the protection mask, washing and disinfecting hands, avoiding the crowded places and events and complying with the national vaccination programme – the only solutions to successfully overcome the pandemic.
Time is ripe for us to make joint efforts for a fairer and healthier world. Let us act locally and think globally.’’
