World Health Day 2018: Take Care of Yourself and Others

Taking care of your health is an important part of life. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy. Health care can be confusing and expensive, leaving many people without the coverage they need to live a happy and healthy life. At Upscript, we take pride in helping men find an affordable and easy option for the medication they need. Our goal is simple — give patients access to medications through simple experiences that work for them. Less hassle and more care is the name of the game.

Today we celebrate World Health Day and recognize the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who lack access to health care essentials such as immunizations, antibiotics, or even the ability to speak with a doctor.

According to the World Health Organization, over “half of the world’s population still does not have full coverage of essential health services”. Consequently, millions of those people are being pushed into extreme poverty due to rising health care costs, and millions more are spending a significant amount of their income to pay for health care necessities. Today, on World Health Day, we recognize the work WHO is doing to ensure universal health coverage in the future.

Upscript strives to make lives easier, creating experiences with physicians that are simple, unique, and affordable for our patients. But how can you play your part? Start a conversation in your community or on social media to see what is being done on the local level to ensure health coverage for all. Communicate with local lawmakers to see what they are doing for your community, and get informed on what organizations like WHO are doing to work towards universal health care, worldwide. Take care of you and make change along the way.
