According to the WHO (World Health Organization), antiviral movements are one of the world's threats to health in 2019. The list also includes climate change, fragile primary care, dengue fever and chronic non-communicable diseases such as diabetes.
According to the UN agency, indecision in vaccination, even with drugs, threatens to nullify the progress made in preventing certain diseases.
“Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective means of preventing disease. It prevents from 2 to 3 million deaths per year, and another 1.5 million can be prevented by improving vaccination coverage, ”the agency said.
WHO also claims that the number of measles cases in the world, for example, has increased by 30%. However, not all growth may be associated with a survey of vaccines.
In 2017, as shown sheetIn every fourth district of the country, the level of compulsory vaccines for infants and children was below the ideal.
The agency pays attention to climate change and air pollution. The agency reports that pollutants damage the lungs, heart and brain, and prematurely kill 7 million people every year from cancer, stroke and heart and lung problems.
Fossil fuels are a major cause of pollution and global warming. WHO claims that climate change is expected to result in an additional 250,000 deaths per year between 2030 and 2050.
Dengue is on the WHO threat list. According to the agency, about 40% of the world is located in areas at risk of dengue, which in serious cases can lead to death.
Primary care is also quoted by the agency. Since this is the first point of contact of the population with health services and the ability to assist in the treatment of most problems, carelessness is risky.
