World Health Day Quotes

Rajinish Menon, CEO & Founder, Sukino Healthcare Solutions

On World Health Day, we stand united in our mission to uphold the intrinsic right of every individual: the right to health. Health is not merely a privilege bestowed upon a fortunate few but a universal entitlement that should be accessible to all, regardless of circumstance.

Besides physical ailments, psychological, emotional, and social factors also impact health outcomes. Accordingly, healthcare provision must become more holistic. Integrated systems of healthcare provision, such as continuum care, should become widespread. Continuum care involves personalised treatment, with compassionate support and technology-enabled interventions to meet the unique needs of each individual. With affordable services in this space, India can accelerate its path toward universal health coverage.

We believe that healthcare should not be a luxury reserved for the privileged few but a fundamental human right that transcends socioeconomic boundaries. By providing innovative, accessible, and personalised care solutions, we need to empower individuals to take charge of their health and assert their right to a fulfilling life. 

On this World Health Day, let us come together to advocate for health equity and universal access to healthcare. Together, we can build a future where healthcare is not just a service but a fundamental human right that is accessible to all, empowering individuals to lead healthier, happier lives.

As we commemorate World Health Day under the theme ‘My Health, My Right,’ it’s crucial to reaffirm that access to quality healthcare is not a privilege but a fundamental right. This year’s theme resonates deeply as it underscores the importance of ensuring that every individual has the right to access healthcare without discrimination or barriers. 

India stands at a pivotal juncture as it progresses towards becoming one of the world’s largest economies. In this journey, addressing the issue of equitable healthcare has never been more pressing. The disparities in healthcare access and quality have been stark, and we must work collectively to bridge these gaps. 

In recent years, AI-powered indigenous solutions have emerged as powerful tools in addressing the challenges of accessibility and quality in healthcare. Innovations such as remote patient monitoring and hyper-personalization have played a significant role in overcoming barriers to care while alleviating the strain on our healthcare professionals. 

The adoption of AI-powered continuous patient monitoring and early warning scores aims to enable India to create a new global standard of patient safety. These innovative solutions not only enable individuals to receive timely and personalised care but also empower healthcare providers with valuable insights to deliver better outcomes. 

As we embark on this journey towards digitisation and democratisation of care, we believe that the current decade holds immense promise for transforming India’s health landscape. By harnessing the power of innovation and collaboration, we can ensure that every individual, irrespective of their background or socio-economic status, has the opportunity to lead a healthier and more fulfilling life. 

On this World Health Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to building a future where healthcare is truly a right for all, not a privilege for a few.


Subodh Gupta, CEO, Lords Mark Microbiotech
Owing to the momentous occasion of World Health Day, Lords Mark Microbiotech stands firm in its belief that health is not a privilege but a fundamental human right. Our commitment echoes the principle: My health is my right. Every individual deserves access to safe, high-quality medical care without discrimination. We advocate for policy changes, community empowerment, and the prioritization of health across all sectors. We anticipate the government will invest substantially to ensure equitable healthcare services for all, prioritizing transparency, accountability, and inclusion while fostering a policy shift that encourages a preventive and proactive approach to healthcare management of chronic diseases rather than a reactive approach. This will help reduce the burden of chronic illness and help the population identify the risks much earlier and take proactive steps to prevent disease. As pioneers in saliva-based preventive genome tests, we strive to democratize healthcare through accessible, at-home kits, unveiling genetic markers for various health conditions. Our mission is to empower individuals, healthcare providers, and researchers worldwide, ensuring that every person, regardless of background, can exercise their right to a healthier future.

In today’s rapidly evolving landscape of healthcare, individuals are increasingly empowered to take control of their own health thanks to advancements in genetics, artificial intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoT) based wearables. With the rise of genetic testing services, individuals can gain valuable insights into their genetic predispositions, allowing them to make informed decisions about their lifestyle, diet, and healthcare choices. Additionally, AI-driven technologies enable personalized health recommendations and predictive analytics, helping individuals proactively manage their health and prevent potential health issues.

The emergence of IoT-based wearables further revolutionizes the way people monitor their health in real-time. From smartwatches and fitness trackers to connected health devices, these wearables provide continuous data on vital signs, activity levels, and sleep patterns, empowering individuals to track their progress and make adjustments to optimize their health.

Personalised preventive health has become increasingly important in today’s healthcare landscape. By leveraging genetic information, AI algorithms, and wearable technology, individuals can adopt personalized preventive measures tailored to their unique needs and risk factors. This proactive approach to health not only enhances overall well-being but also reduces the risk of chronic diseases and improves long-term health outcomes. As individuals become more engaged in their health journey, the future of healthcare is poised to shift towards a preventive, personalized, and proactive model that prioritizes individual empowerment and well-being.

Addressing India’s health challenges necessitates a comprehensive strategy encompassing education, infrastructure development, and technological innovation. 

The recent waves of the Pandemic have contributed to increasing awareness on overall health of people. Community education on diseases and preventive measures empowers individuals to make informed health decisions, fostering a proactive approach to well-being. Investment in healthcare infrastructure, particularly in rural areas, integration of telemedicine & leveraging technology to ensure equitable access to quality healthcare, bridging geographical disparities in service provision. 

Strengthening the healthcare workforce through the establishment of additional medical institutions and specialist training programs enhances the supply side of service delivery nationwide, catering to diverse healthcare needs effectively. 

Regulatory framework needs to be developed under a ‘single window’ concept to attract private investments into Hospitals, which contributes a major share of healthcare services delivery in our country. The improved penetration of third-party payment systems has made private quaternary care accessible to the burgeoning middle-class. 

Technological advancements, such as advanced diagnostic and treatment modalities like mammography and precise radiation systems, bolster disease detection and management efficacy, contributing to better patient outcomes. Data-driven insights play a pivotal role in policymaking, guiding resource allocation for maximum healthcare impact. Moreover, integration of health wearables into healthcare systems offers valuable insights into individual health status, enabling early detection of potential issues and facilitating proactive management of chronic conditions. 

By leveraging these strategies collectively, India can enhance healthcare delivery, improve health outcomes, and achieve a healthier future for all its citizens.

As we commemorate World Health Day, it’s imperative to underscore the intrinsic value of health as a fundamental human right. Regardless of one’s social status, economic means, or geographical location, every individual deserves access to comprehensive healthcare services. It’s not merely a privilege but a basic entitlement that should be safeguarded and upheld by societies worldwide. As healthcare professionals, we bear a profound responsibility to ensure that this right is realized for every patient who entrusts us with their well-being. 

 Our commitment to providing exemplary care must be unwavering. We are entrusted with the sacred duty of healing, alleviating suffering, and promoting wellness in all its dimensions. This entails not only addressing physical ailments but also attending to the emotional, mental, and social aspects of our patients’ health. We must strive to cultivate a culture of empathy, compassion, and respect within our practice, recognizsing the inherent dignity and worth of every individual under our care. 

 Moreover, we must advocate tirelessly for healthcare systems that are equitable, accessible, and responsive to the needs of all members of society. This includes advocating for policies that address social determinants of health, eliminate barriers to care, and prioritise preventive measures. By leveraging our expertise, influence, and voice, we can affect meaningful change and contribute to the realisation of universal health coverage. 

On this World Health Day, let us reaffirm our dedication to the noble cause of healing and commit ourselves anew to the principles of patient-centered care and health equity. Let us pledge to give our utmost, to go above and beyond in our efforts to safeguard the health and well-being of every individual we serve. Together, we can create a world where health is not a privilege reserved for the few but a right enjoyed by all, where no one is left behind in the pursuit of a healthier, happier future.

Healthy and nutritious food is not just a privilege; it is a fundamental human right that forms the cornerstone of well-being. As we approach World Health Day with the theme ‘My Health, My Right,’ it is imperative to recognise that access to knowledge about proper nutrition and its pivotal role in managing non-communicable diseases is a right owed to every individual.

Research shows that many chronic non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases can be effectively managed, and in some cases even reversed, through lifestyle interventions, particularly adopting a plant-based diet. This knowledge empowers individuals to take control of their health outcomes, promoting longevity and vitality.

However, disparities in access to this vital information persist globally, disproportionately affecting marginalized communities. Therefore, as we advocate for the right to health, we must also advocate for equitable access to nutritional education and resources. By bridging this gap, we not only promote healthier individuals but also build healthier communities and a more resilient society.
