    On World Health Day, ICESCO calls for investing in the capacities of youth and women in developing healthcare systems

    6 April 2024

    On the 7th of April of each year, World Health Day is celebrated to raise awareness about various health issues and mobilize efforts to improve healthcare. This year’s theme “My Health, My Right” highlights that access to comprehensive and equitable healthcare is a fundamental right for all.

    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) sees that celebrating World Health Day is an opportunity to highlight the steps taken in the health field at both regional and international levels, to build a better future for future generations. The Organization calls for the need to utilize the capacities of youth and women in developing and consolidating comprehensive healthcare systems.

    On this occasion, ICESCO reaffirms its commitment to contributing to the development of healthcare infrastructure, enhancing scientific research in the field, and finding innovative solutions to address urgent health challenges in Islamic countries. This is to contribute to disease prevention and achieve health equity through initiatives, programs, and projects that employ the latest science and technology.

    In this context, ICESCO is actively pursuing the establishment of strategic partnerships to contribute to enhancing healthcare systems in its Member States. The Organization recently signed an agreement with the World Health Organization on March 26, 2024, to collaborate in areas such as strengthening healthcare systems, building the capacity of healthcare professionals, promoting the adoption of digital technologies, and facilitating the exchange of experiences and knowledge. These efforts aim to support Islamic countries in their preparedness and resilience against natural disasters and other threats to public health. Moreover, ICESCO launched several programs aimed at improving water resource management, including the ICESCO program to improve the quality of water and sanitation services in rural schools in several countries of the Islamic world.
