April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
This year’s World Health Day is celebrated in the midst of a global health crisis. Our Servant Leaders who are in the health domain are not left behind, as they wants their voices to be heard.
George Gabila is a C-Life Cohort 10 Servant Leader and as a Nurse, he is Passionate about transforming the Health Sector of Africa. As he celebrates the World Health Day 2021, this this what he has to say.
“Health has always been the heartbeat, heart break, and cardiac stroke of the world, its demands are enormous, its changes are demanding and yet its supplies are limited or should we say we humans are demanding more than health can offer? The world cries daily as pandemics hits the earth either from the flaws of our creativity or the dynamics of nature and perhaps caused by man.
We can’t lament more, but the pain of the present leaves us in despair, nothing but generations swept by pandemics.
As we celebrate the World Health Day amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important to ponder on the theme of the year: Building a Fairer Healthier World, let’s take into consideration that to achieve this goal, we need to build passionate, impartial and honest medical personnel whose neutrality in service to mankind flows through their bloodstream. And in so doing, we will all reach wholeness in body, mind and spirit”.
