Public Health Emergencies in the New Millennium: A Rising International Concern
Keywords:Public Health , WHO, International Health Regulations
Pandemics have been reported throughout human history, but recently there appears to be an alarming rise in the frequency and diversity of health threats that is of grave international concern. In addition to natural pandemics of infectious diseases, there is a host of other problems like antimicrobial resistance, bio-warfare, climate change, and even flaring up of non-communicable diseases to name a few, that are having devastating effects on public health as well as on global and national economy.
It is time we introspect into our role in their causation and also find ways to alleviate such an alarming problem. World Health Organization has designed the World Health Day Theme for the year 2022 as “Our Planet, Our Health”. The earlier we realize and internalize this concept, the better it is for us.
