During the Commonwealth Health Ministers meeting, Union Health Minister, J.P. Nadda, said that the investment in universal health coverage should be considered as an insightful investment for the future.
The meeting took place on 17 May 2015 in Geneva under the theme, universal health coverage, with an emphasis on “ageing and good health.” The focus of universal health coverage is to ensure that people from all age groups receive the required health services without facing any financial hardship when paying for them.
A news agency reported J.P. Nadda as saying, “We believe that investment in universal health coverage, including for aged population, should be considered as a smart investment for future.”
The minister also added, “India is committed to achieve universal health coverage for all age groups. It has charted a path that depends largely on provision of affordable, quality health care through the public health system as its main form of social protection, with supplementation from the private sector to close gaps.”
As per the report, Nadda said that India has a comparatively young population with about 66 per cent of population below the age of 35 years.
“We are also cognizant of the potential challenge in the next three decades as this age group would move into the category of older people,” he said.
While referring to solutions to tackle the challenge, the minister said that India is formulating new policies, including social, human and economic investments, to ensure healthy life-style among old generation.
“We are also encouraging public-private partnerships to improve investments and access to health services. Over 14,000 publicly financed ambulances are in position to shift over 100,000 emergencies daily on a completely cashless basis,” concluded Nadda.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:
Every child responds differently to disturbing events: What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices. With more and more devices, more and more chargers are sold that are not interchangeable or not necessary. We are putting an end to that," the report quoted EU commissioner Thierry Breton as saying.
The Commission also wants to unbundle the sale of chargers from the sale of electronic devices, which it says will improve the consumers' convenience. "With our proposal, European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste." In addition, the Commission will require manufacturers to provide relevant information about charging performance. (IANS/MBI)
