The General Assembly,

      Recognizing  the   urgent   need   to   pursue   multilateral   efforts   to   promote   and  improve human health, and provide access to treatment and health­care education,        Fully   believing  that   the   main   health   system   problems   identified   are   lack   of  money, poor hospital amenities and a general weak primary health care system,       Noting with deep concern  that there is an acute shortage of medical staff, with  only one doctor for every 30,000 people,       Alarmed by the fact that the growing number of children, adolescents and women  of child­bearing age are mostly affected by NCDs (non­communicable diseases),       Deeply concerned  by the slow and insufficient progress in providing access to  basic sanitation services, and conscious of the impact of poor sanitation on people’s  health, poverty reduction and socio­economic development,        Keeping   in   mind  that   the   existing   laws   on   the   Health   Insurance   Fund   are  not efficiently implemented in the health sector,       Taking into  consideration  that  people  who  live  in  poverty undergo  inadequate  self­care rather than receive appropriate medical care for their chronic diseases due to  the expense of treatment,      1.  Appeals  to   the   Red   Cross   and   ‘Médecins   Sans   Frontières’   to   make   the  provision   of   medical   assistance   and   training   to  consolidate  health   system   and  its  maintenance;
