One key rule of farming is patience.

If you are not patient enough don't worry you can still be in the agric business.
Yes, I said so because along the value chain there are many ways of making money but one key opportunity for those who want to venture is agro marketing.
There are many agricultural products people around you consume; you could start being a distributor.

In fact, most times I advise anyone who wants to go into farming or production to start off marketing.

That way you begin to learn some basics so when you go into your own, you would have identified the need of the customers in your niche.

For example, if you want to start a layers farm, sell eggs!

LIVE on #WorldHealthDay with @DrTedros: An urgent call to work together to tackle health inequities…
"#HealthEquity is the theme of #WorldHealthDay this year. This is one of the core challenges our time, which is why we are launching a campaign to build a fairer and healthier world"-@DrTedros

"Inequity is a not new problem, of course, but the #COVID19 pandemic has brought it into sharp focus. More than 2,850,000 of our sisters and brothers have lost their lives – and we have lost them"-@DrTedros #WorldHealthDay

1/ #WorldHealthDay is also a good day to reflect on the opportunities that many India's health challenges bring. In this thread, we summarise some.
First, investing more in health and recognizing disease prevention and health promotion should be the topmost priority.
2/ Currently, India has one of the lowest allocations to health among all countries of the world as percentage of GDP.
3/ As a result of such a low investment in health and due to high out-of-pocket expenditure (85.6% according to the @WorldBank) millions of people are pushed further into poverty and are unable to escape.

And so Day 3 of my story of God at work in my life as part of #OfGodAndMe #ThisNunsStory series. Yesterday mention of the book, The Silver Sword seems to have struck a chord with many so perhaps its not out of place to mention that today 7th April is #Worldhealthday 1/20
Ian Serraillier ended his talks by showing this photo with the words, ‘No child should ever again have that expression on his face’. My hope this the UK as host of the upcoming #G7 summit will prioritise Universal health care for all. #UCH 2/20
So back to my story. Living at home again and my dream of religious life gone out the window I applied and got a place for September at Brighton College of Education to do a cert ed in biological science & primary education 3/20

Hospitals in Ancient India.

The state in India always realised its responsibility to its citizens and functioned as a welfare state.

In India, hospitals have existed from ancient times. The state had arranged places where the patients were lodged and treated.

Fa-hien, a Chinese traveller who visited India during the times of Chandragupta, provides us details about the charitable dispensaries in Pataliputra.
According to Fa-hien the nobles & householders of this country founded hospitals within the city to which the destitute of all
countries, the poor, the crippled and the diseased may come. Here, these people were treated freely and provided with every kind of help. After inspecting their diseases the physicians treated them with all their efforts.

1/ This #WorldHealthDay in the quest to achieve equitable healthcare for all, it is worth looking at some of India's biggest health challenges. In the health sector, India has made enormous strides over the past decades.
2/ Life expectancy has crossed 67 years, infant and under-five mortality rates are declining as is the rate of disease incidence. Diseases, such as polio, guinea worm disease, yaws, and tetanus, have been eradicated.
3/ In spite of this progress, communicable diseases are expected to continue to remain a major public health problem in the coming decades posing a threat to both national and international health security. Dealing with these diseases requires a high level of readiness.

On #WorldHealthDay, let's build a fairer, healthier 🌎🌍🌏

#COVID19 highlighted how some 👱🙎🏽‍♀️ live healthier lives & have better access to health services than others, due to their living conditions.

It's time for #HealthEquity to reach #HealthForAll!

It's #WorldHealthDay

To achieve #HealthForAll, everyone needs access, without discrimination, to the health services they need without suffering financial hardship.

We can and must build a fairer, healthier 🌎🌍🌏 for everyone, everywhere.

#COVID19 shows that #HealthEquity is more urgent than ever. It’s laid bare inequities in access and coverage of health services, mortality and socio-economic impacts.

Today, on #WorldHealthDay, we ask you to join us in acknowledging the unsung #healthheroes who are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We salute you! Image
Even now, we must confront the implicit biases within our healthcare systems that make it more difficult for Black patients, even infants, to receive adequate care. #WorldHealthDay Image
The other challenge to Black health & wellness that must be overcome is lack of health insurance.

This obstacle has been fortified by the actions of this presidential administration & their efforts to against the Affordable Care Act.

On this #WorldHealthDay, it’s important we thank our health care providers for continuously fighting for Americans across the country. We also need to recognize disparities in health care during this time. That is why nurses are included in my INVEST initiative. Image
Our nursing and homecare professionals are on the front lines daily. They are overworked and often lack resources they need to keep millions of Americans safe. The United States has fewer nurses and fewer hospital beds per capita than most other developed countries.
We need to ensure our healthcare providers that we are prioritizing their needs. That is why the INVEST initiative is important. Our healthcare service providers need to be treated as the hero’s they are.

We created the conditions that led to the current #pandemic, writes WCS’s Dr. Christian Walzer for @ensiamedia.

We reduced natural boundaries between humans and wild animals. #WorldHealthDay

Spillovers like #COVID19 are likely to become regular occurrences unless we, as a world community, elect to change.

What must we do? @TheWCS & @Global_Wildlife have called for adoption and enforcement of a global ban on commercial wildlife trade and unsustainable use of wildlife.
