건강보험공단은 상고 없이 이 판결을 받아들여 동성결합 건강보험 피부양자 자격을 인정해야 합니다. 보편적 건강보장의 의미를 이해한다면 법원의 혁신적 판결이 승인한 사회보장의 원리를 지지하지는 못할 망정 발목을 잡아서는 안 되겠죠.…
언제 아플지 모를 사람들의 부담을 함께 나누어지자는 사회연대의 원칙은 국민건강보험의 존재 기반입니다. 차별과 배제, 이성애정상가족규정의 폭력을 넘어서는 보편적 건강보장이 건보공단의 주요 업무이구요.

사실 한국 건강보험공단의 현재 행태(..동성부부에 대한 건강보험 피부양자 자격 불인정과 이로 인한 행정소송)는 국제사회에 성명서를 써서 문제로 삼아야할 사안인 셈이지요^_^;; 비판이 늦은 셈이고, 한국의 진보적 보건의료운동이 여기에 여태 결합 않은 것은 참말로(...)

1/ Folks, @UHC must be called out w/ official complaints to the NSA CMS complaint portal as they have created an artificial, illegal & unnecessary process to try to "burn the clock" on physician's rights under the #NSA. To wit here's what they direct physicians to do, bare w/...

1/Let’s be very clear about @UHC —for nearly 10 yrs I have chaired @ACEPNow Reimbursement Committee Work Group 2 charged w/ monitoring & addressing “bad payor” issues; for the,past +5 yrs nearly every month #UHC final diag. lists that down-pay/down-code……

Today marks the start of #WHA75!

This week, @WHO, Ministries of Health, civil society, & more will discuss #GlobalHealth priorities.

Missing on agenda? #GlobalSurgery & 🫀 care.

Hence, I'll be sharing key points, papers, & developments in #GlobalCardiacSurgery in 75 tweets 👇 Image
(1/75) To start, what *is* #GlobalCardiacSurgery?

GCS extends far beyond OR, from community-based disease detection & efficient referral networks to timely care, long-term follow-up, robust supply chains & adequate financial risk protection. #WHA75

(2/75) Why does #GlobalCardiacSurgery matter?

Increasing overmedicalisation at the end of life is denying people & their families a good death.

Towards a compassionate community model: The Lancet #ValueofDeath Commission calls for a radical rethink of care for the dying & attitudes to death. Death and dying must be rec...
How death is managed today:
• Alienates communities
• Pushes families in countries without #UHC into poverty
• Deprioritises efforts to reduce suffering, such as #PalliativeCare
• Diverts resources
• Is costly for health services
#ValueofDeath Image
Scientific advances have fuelled the belief death should be feared, avoided, defeated.

Centralising community involvement, partnerships, & better bereavement support will help rebalance societies' & medicine's relationship with death—an inevitable part of life. #ValueofDeath Image

1/ As famous @WakeForest professor Maya Angelou said, “When people show you who they are believe them” —stunning reveals here—Former @UHC exec says company would only pay surprise bills after complaints……? @drdanchoi utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social
3/ So the former senior exec. for @UHC admits that it did not inform members in writing via letter that #UnitedHealth would reimburse out of network bills, instead it was buried in the fine print of the #EOB to the Pt. & Pts. had to ask UHC to pay.

.@naomiclarelee opens the #GHFutures2030 Commission launch.

"'Digital Health is not neglected—it's a distraction to #UHC', we were told. Now, we're in a pivotal moment—being intentional about this new path is essential & requires urgent improvement." @GHFutures2030 Image
"People are much more aware of how we depend on digital resolve & respond to health challenges. But, we are also more aware of the ways these transformations—or exclusion from them—can be detrimental to our health & rights." 💬 @IlonaKickbusch #GHFutures2030 Image
"These are the new determinants of health", says @AnuragAgrawalMD.

"Public health & #UHC must be reimagined to include & realise the potential of digital transformations."

@PatsyYates and @didarmody in conversation at #21OPCC. #socialjustice is a major take away from this #palliativecare conference.
Importance of appreciating all unique contexts - homelessness, paediatric care, care of older people. Legal aspects of #palliativecare #21OPCC
International panel very strong on not "othering" - we can all learn from each other in a global community. COVID-19 has made that even clearer. Yes!! Well done international panel team. You rock :) @OdetteSpruyt @ntizimira @kpettus @APHPCN Dr Ghauri, Dr Malama #21OPCC

Robert Yates of @ChathamHouse and @LSHTM comes to us from a sunny London! We are so lucky to have him chat to us about how palliative care can get a "decent crack of the whip" on universal health reforms. #21OPCC
@ChathamHouse @LSHTM "This is an opportunity for radical change. We should be prepared and get organised." But what is Universal Health Coverage? Important to nail down the definition. #21OPCC Simple definition here 👇 Image
@ChathamHouse @LSHTM But the longer definition makes it clear that palliative care is part of the continuum. Wherever you see UHC, we must insist on palliative care not being crowded out by curative services. #21OPCC Image

Hi @FCDOGovUK @10DowningStreet, there appears to be something missing from your #IntegratedReview, did you forget something?
PM spinning that he'll use the review to make a 'personal commitment' to restoring the 0.7% aid target doesn't cut it. The wording of the #IntegratedReview says it'll return 'when fiscal situation allows' - not a firm commitment, another promise to be broken
Even if he were to be believed, that's still a year at 0.5%. Hundreds of thousands of lives lost. Aid to Yemen and Syria cut by nearly 2/3.

It's not a necessary cut, and in any case it comes as they announce increasing spending on *more* nuclear weapons. #IntegratedReview

WHO's Universal Health Coverage (#UHC) Partnership Initiative supports 1⃣1⃣5⃣ countries in strengthening their health systems to boost #COVID19 response & accelerate progress towards #HealthForAll.

More in detail 👉
#COVID19 has shown that investing in health is not optional. Prosperous & peaceful societies are only possible when no one is left behind.

In #Colombia🇨🇴, the government is enhancing access to primary health care using an intercultural health model 👉
Bringing health care closer to communities through primary health care & training has so far proven to be the best protection against the #COVID19 pandemic.

My presentation at the @LagHealthScheme UHC Day Celebration.

Over the last 2 decades @followlasg had experimented with many policy initiatives such as: The Free Health Scheme; the community based health insurance scheme (CBHIS) aimed at attaining #UHC #ForAGreaterLagos
The journey towards #UHC has not been without hitches. This necessitated the establishment of an all inclusive mandatory health scheme to bridge the gap

The objective of the scheme is to reduce out of pocket spend, thereby protecting the population against the financial risks
Challenge - fragmentation and low coverage;

•2% of the population of Lagos has health insurance, including fragmented NHIS programs and private health insurance.

The sought future of "#healthcare" - "The #WEF, the int. org. for public-private cooperation, hosts the #PrivateSector Constituency of #UHC2030 & provides a platform for interaction for all UHC2030 partners & health systems networks."

6 months into #COVID19, our best measures of pandemic preparedness have not been correlated w/fewer deaths

In fact, nations w/higher JEE, GHSI, and #UHC scores have had *higher* death rates, even accounting for age structure & timing of 1st case

why? 1/
#COVID19 has revealed that we don't yet understand how best to measure countries' capacity to respond effectively to severe pandemic threats

this admittedly wonky thread is based on new @ThinkGlobalHlth post looking at JEE, GHSI & #UHC in this pandemic 2/…
