Nthe World Health Day, remembered today (7), the entity highlights that the pandemic of covid-19 showed discrepancies in access to health services due to inequalities that cross a series of social situations, such as income, gender, race and origin .

According to PAHO, many people struggle not only to survive the pandemic but also to to have what to eat and meet their basic needs and diverse rights, such as education and safe housing.

In the message, the organization emphasizes that this reality can be changed by the political choices of governments and public authorities in the countries of the Americas, especially in the context of the pandemic.

“We ask leaders to ensure that equity in health is the centerpiece of our recovery from covid-19. This will result in a region where everyone has living and working conditions conducive to good health, health information systems are configured to identify vulnerable populations and civil society and individuals are partners in the search for solutions where inequalities occur and where everyone has access to health care and doctors without suffering discrimination ”, highlights the letter.
