Epidemic Preparedness Day: Great need for raising awareness on epidemic preparedness, says iGP



Press Statement 

Unchir-Dunktok, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, 27 December 2021: The India Greens Party (iGP) today said there is a great need of raising awareness, the exchange of information, scientific knowledge and best practices, quality education, and advocacy programmes on epidemics at the local, national, regional and global levels as effective measures to prevent and respond to epidemics.

In a press statement on the occasion of the International Day of Epidemic Preparedness today, the IGP Chief Spokesperson Suresh Nautiyal said there is an urgent need to have resilient and robust health systems, reaching those who are vulnerable or in vulnerable situations.

He said the global health crises have threatened to overwhelm already overstretched health systems, disrupt global supply chains and cause disproportionate devastation of the livelihoods of people, including women and children, and the economies of the poorest and most vulnerable countries.

Mr Nautiyal said it is necessary to strengthen epidemic prevention by applying lessons learned on epidemic management and how to prevent the stoppage of basic services, and to raise the level of preparedness in order to have the earliest and most adequate response to any epidemic that may arise.

The iGP is of the view that the governments must commit to ensure inclusive, equal and non-discriminatory participation, with special attention to those who are vulnerable or in vulnerable situations with the highest chance of epidemic infection.
