Question of: Nations’ responsibility for good health of its citizens

Submitted by: Djibouti

Encouraged by the objective of the World Health Organization (WHO) which is the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health,

Affirms that health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity,

Reminds nations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNUDHR), Article 25 which states that everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family,

Emphasising the Millennium Development Goals (UNMDG) 4 and 5 which concern the reduction in infant and maternal fatalities,

Confident that a duty to the health of the citizens of the world is undoubtedly the responsibility of the United Nations as a whole,

Noting that the medical capability of the world in general is massive,

Noting further that this capability is spread unevenly around the planet’s population,

Conscious that there are few paid jobs for skilled medical practitioners away from population centres,

Agrees that the cost of universal healthcare is considerable,

Believes that the goal of universal good health is each nations’ most important,

  1. Calls for a worldwide health coalition be created under the leadership of the WHO called the United Nations Service for Universal Remedy Experts (UNSURE);
  2. Invites nations to disband their own health care services in favour of UNSURE;
  3. Affirms that all finances previously given to national health services shall be used to fund UNSURE;
  4. Proclaims that all nations should provide future finances to UNSURE in proportion to their population;
  5. Declares that the remit of UNSURE will include;
    1. a census of all nations’ medical capabilities,
    2. an equal redistribution of these capabilities to create medical parity worldwide,
    3. the construction of hospitals and surgeries in all population centres of the world that do not currently contain such facilities,
    4. the distribution of each nations’ medical experts appropriately,
    5. the research, manufacture and transport of new medications,
    6. generation of educational material and advertising on the subject of UNSURE and its purpose,
    7. creation of health information leaflets in all known languages,
    8. the administration of funding for all of the above,
  6. Notes accordingly that the responsibility for the health of citizens will henceforth belong to UNSURE;
  7. Further declares that UNSURE could also take over the training of new medical practitioners;
  8. Asks that additional responsibilities for UNSURE be suggested in amendments;
  9. Trusts that the standardisation of universal healthcare will not be swayed by political opinion or isolationist beliefs.
