चिकित्सकों के लिए पहली जुलाई शपथ दोहराने का दिन:राष्‍ट्रीय चिकित्‍सा दिवस:डॉ.हर्षवर्धन
स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य मंत्री डॉ. हर्षवर्धन ने आज कहा कि देश के सभी चिकित्‍सकों का यह कर्तव्‍य है कि वे अपने समय के महान चिकित्‍सक और राजनीतिज्ञ डॉ बिधान चन्‍द्र रॉय के सपने को पूरा करें। उन्‍होंने कहा कि चाहे वह एलोपैथिक चिकित्‍सक हो या पारंपरिक और घरेलू चिकित्‍सा प्रणा‍ली द्वारा उपचार करने वाला चिकित्‍सक हो, उन सबको डॉ बिधान चन्‍द्र रॉय के विचारों को याद करना चाहिए।
उल्‍लेखनीय है कि डॉ रॉय को 1961 में उनके जीवन काल में भारतरत्‍न से विभूषित किया गया था।
डॉ हर्षवर्धन राष्‍ट्रीय चिकित्‍सक दिवस (01 जुलाई) की पूर्व संध्‍या पर चिकित्‍सक बिरादरी को संबोधित कर रहे थे। उन्‍होंने कहा कि आज का दिन डॉक्‍टरों के लिए शपथ दोहराने का दिन है।
डॉ. हर्षवर्धन ने कहा कि हमारे देश में डॉक्‍टर अध्‍यापकों के रूप में, सशस्‍त्र बलों, गैर सरकारी और स्‍वयंसेवी क्षेत्रों तथा पूरे देश के प्राथमिक स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य केन्‍द्रों में कठिन परिस्थितियों में भी काम करने में पीछे नहीं हैं। उन्‍होंने डॉक्‍टरों को उनकी कर्तव्‍यपरायणता के लिए सलाम किया और कहा कि आपदा के समय हमारे देश के डॉक्‍टर अपने जीवन की परवाह न करते हुए भी सेवा करते हैं।
डॉ. हर्षवर्धन ने कहा कि स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य मंत्री होने के नाते उनका यह कर्तव्‍य है कि वे स्‍वस्‍थ जीवन शैली को प्रोत्साहन देकर देश से बीमारियों का भार कम करें। उन्‍होंने कहा कि प्रधानमंत्री ने उन्‍हें निर्देश दिया है कि अनुसंधान, अभिनव प्रयोगों और आधुनिक प्रौद्योगिकी के जरिए स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य क्षेत्र में आमूल परिवर्तन किया जाए। उन्‍होंने कहा कि विश्‍व स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य संगठन द्वारा निर्धारित मानदंडों के अनुसार हमारे यहाँ आबादी के अनुपात में चिकित्‍सों की संख्‍या काफी कम है, इसलिए पहले की अपेक्षा भारत को अधिक डॉक्‍टरों की जरूरत है।

Narendra Modi Lays Foundation Of Tobacco Free India:Joins WHO And Says No To Tobacco

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi Lays The Foundation Of Tobacco Free India By Joining The Voice Of World Health Organisation . Modi Says No To Killer Tobacco On “World No Tobacco Day”.
Narendra Modi tweeted:
“On World No Tobacco Day, lets pledge to spread awareness on the risks of tobacco consumption & work to reduce tobacco consumption in India. Tobacco not only affects those consuming it, but also people around. By saying no to tobacco, let us lay the foundation of a healthier India.”Today Is World No Tobacco Day For this day W H O Has given a call to raise taxes on Tobacco
As per W H O Reports The global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 6 million people each year, of which more than 600 000 are non-smokers dying from breathing second-hand smoke. Unless we act, the epidemic will kill more than 8 million people every year by 2030. More than 80% of these preventable deaths will be among people living in low-and middle-income countries.
Under the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC), countries should implement tax and price policies on tobacco products as a way to reduce tobacco consumption. Research shows that higher taxes are especially effective in reducing tobacco use among lower-income groups and in preventing young people from starting to smoke. A tax increase that increases tobacco prices by 10% decreases tobacco consumption by about 4% in high-income countries and by up to 8% in most low- and middle-income countries.
Furthermore, increasing excise taxes on tobacco is considered to be the most cost-effective tobacco control measure. The World Health Report 2010 indicated that a 50% increase in tobacco excise taxes would generate a little more than US$ 1.4 billion in additional funds in 22 low-income countries. If allocated to health, government health spending in these countries could increase by up to 50%.
Goals
The ultimate goal of World No Tobacco Day is to contribute to protecting present and future generations not only from the devastating health consequences due to tobacco, but also from the social, environmental and economic scourges of tobacco use and exposure to tobacco smoke.
Every year, on 31 May, WHO and partners everywhere mark World No Tobacco Day, highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption. Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death globally and is currently responsible for 10% of adult deaths worldwide.
It Is Stated By WHO That
[1]Tobacco kills up to half of its users.
[2]Tobacco kills nearly 6 million people each year. More than five million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while [3]more than 600 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. Unless urgent action is taken, the annual [4]death toll could rise to more than eight million by 2030.
[5]Nearly 80% of the world’s one billion smokers live in low- and middle-income countries
