We all know someone suffering from:

Cancer
Diabetes
Lung disease
Heart diseases
Stroke

These noncommunicable diseases are the ๐ŸŒ's biggest killers, responsible for 7 out of every 10 deaths worldwide.

We need your help to #BeatNCDs!
Tobacco. ๐Ÿšฌ
Alcohol. ๐Ÿป
Air pollution. ๐Ÿญ
Unhealthy diet. ๐Ÿ”
Physical inactivity. ๐Ÿ›‹๏ธ

These are the main NCDs risks.

Let's STOP them.
Let's #BeatNCDs.
@pahowho @WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @WHOEMRO @WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO Noncommunicable diseases kill 41 million people prematurely every year, many of them in the prime of life.

41 MILLION lives.
41 MILLION families affected.

But we could save nearly 10 million lives by 2025. Let's #BeatNCDs

Today is #IndigenousPeoplesDay.

Care provided in the community, by the community is the best way to achieve #HealthForAll.

This is how Budyari ๐Ÿฅ is working with one of #Australiaโ€™s indigenous communities to make sure people get the care they need when they need it.
DYK: Too often Indigenous peoples do not have the same access to health care as other populations.

#PrimaryHealthCare is all about equity & making services available to everyone at all ages, right in their community.

#IndigenousPeoplesDay
Indigenous peoples have their own cultures, languages โ€“ and health needs. In #Australia, indigenous populations have a significantly lower life expectancy than non-indigenous populations. Prevention and health promotion in the community can help change this. #HealthForAll

โ€œUnless we address noncommunicable diseases with the urgency of an outbreak, the NCDs epidemic will take a toll for decades to come. I commend #Tonga for their efforts to #BeatNCDs by increasing taxes on tobacco, alcohol, sugary drinks & other harmful foods"-@DrTedros in ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ด
"I commend you for strengthening services for those who suffer, both at the hospital and at the health centers. We need to collaborate with other governments and communities who face the same challenges to #BeatNCDs"-@DrTedros in ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ด
"WHO is starting to provide support to the Government of #Tonga on two projects targeting children: one on ending childhood obesity and the other on health-promoting schools. Itโ€™s vital that we teach our children healthy habits when they are young"-@DrTedros in ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ด

Why healthcare is incapable of reducing its own costs:
A tutorial system analysis
#M4A #UHC #healthcare #healthcarecosts @ASlavitt @boltyboy #futurist imaginewhatif.com #healthcaredebate #healthforall
2/26
The health insurance industry's hired guns cry that Medicare For All (or any universal healthcare) would "crash the system" and "destroy healthcare as we know it."

They say that like it's a bad thing.
3/26
They say we should trust them and their cost-cutting efforts to bring all Americans more affordable health care.

We should not trust them, because the system as it is currently structured economically is incapable of reducing costs.

Why?

"At a time when the rest of the world is grappling with the challenges of ageing populations, #Africa has the worldโ€™s youngest population.
The 10 countries with the youngest populations are all in Africa."

"Itโ€™s an outrage that any family has to choose between buying medicine and buying food; between poverty and illness.
Thatโ€™s why WHOโ€™s top priority is #HealthForAll. Ultimately, it is not just a moral imperative; itโ€™s an economic imperative."-@DrTedros at #TEFForum2019 in ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ
"My asks for African leaders:
1โƒฃ Harness the power of health for economic growth. Countries that invest in building resilient health systems, based on strong #PrimaryHealthCare, make an investment that will pay a rich dividend for decades to come"-@DrTedros at #TEFForum2019 in ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ

The @CSO4UHC is calling on #HLMUHC to commit govts to move from private, voluntary, out-of-pocket payments towards public financing with minimum 5% of GDP as govt health spending. Hereโ€™s why. #UHC4Me 1/7
World Health Report 2010 by @WHO showed that only when direct payments fall to 15โ€“20% of total health expenditure that incidence of financial catastrophe and impoverishment falls to negligible levels. 2/7
World Health Report 2010 also showed that governments which ensure access to a set of services usually spend 5โ€“6% of GDP as government health expenditure. 3/7

I want to share 2 stories. Both of these women have recently been potentially diagnosed with cancer.

For now, I'll call them "woman on the left" and "woman on the right".

I want to share the differences in health care.

Please finish the thread to see how I know them.
Woman on the left is Dutch. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Woman on the right is Indigenous. She is also a wife (widow), mother, and grandmother.
Woman on the left recently got a call saying she needs to go for further testing after results came back from a test she took a week ago.

Woman on the right has been waiting for further testing for months. Her scheduled MRI was just cancelled because the machine broke down.

There's so much more that health is missing through these few years of development.

So much more can be done through #communication and #data mining.

What exactly is drawing health back when other discipline have skyrocketed their fields in tech?

#HealthForAll #WHD2019
While Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacies and other health professionals need to do more through accumulating capabilities outside the core health discipline to take courses starting with maybe critical thinking or design thinking. Learn tech skills in analytics etc.

#HealthForAll
Preventive health can be finally the major health market when predictive analytics is capitalized on.

However, we still need a deep EHR system to gather enough data. These data are everywhere but putting them in a place is important for growth.
