This year, WHO worked with countries and other partners to fight outbreaks and eliminate diseases, while building toward the goal of health for all.
We have selected a few news items from countries as 2022 bright spots:
The Bahamas has maintained a careful watch to ensure that its population receives safe, effective, affordable vaccines and treatments for COVID-19.
“The regulation of medicines and vaccines is important because this is how we ensure that only safe, effective and quality-assured drugs and vaccines are imported into the country,” said Dr Gina Archer, Assistant Hospital Administrator at the Ministry of Health and Wellness. “The Caribbean Regulatory System has been very important to the Bahamas in terms of identifying which vaccines are safe to import.” The Bahamas is among the 115 countries and areas to which the UHC Partnership helps deliver WHO support and technical expertise in advancing universal health care through a primary health care approach.
