Access To Health Care ‘Essential To Shared Humanity,’ WHO Official Says

WHO: A new world, a new agenda for humanity
In a commentary, Bruce Aylward, WHO executive director ad interim of outbreaks and health emergencies, discusses access to health care, writing, “Providing assistance to [people in conflict and emergency situations] is the right thing to do. But it is also in our own self-interest. … Everyone, everywhere, has the right to health — including people affected by crises. Ensuring they can access health services is essential to our shared humanity” (5/22).
