Public Health is a critical aspect of the medical and healthcare field, often overlooked until it becomes essential during crises, such as the Covid pandemic. To protect the health of all citizens, preventative measures and resources must be invested in, as emphasized during the “Take care of your health” meeting. Elena Andradas, general director of Public Health for the Community of Madrid, highlights the importance of investing in prevention programs and maintaining updated information systems. She also stresses the need for training at all levels, particularly for health professionals.
Collaboration between different entities and private companies is vital in public health. Juan Carlos Gil, general director of Moderna for Spain and Portugal, emphasizes the importance of investment in vaccine production and distribution to ensure access for patients in Europe. As part of these efforts, Moderna has made significant investments in Spain and plans to continue doing so. Additionally, collaboration with scientific societies and universities is crucial for advancing public health initiatives.
The acceptance of vaccines by the population is essential to prevent programs’ success. Ángel Gil de Miguel from the Vaccine Advisory Committee of the Ministry of Health stresses that community and family medicine should be involved to improve vaccination rates among adults. Jaime Jesús Pérez, president of the Spanish Association of Vaccinology, points out that continuous observation and analysis are necessary to understand why certain populations are not vaccinated.
Vaccination has proven to be a cost-effective measure that saves lives worldwide, especially preventing deaths from influenza. The use of mRNA technology for Covid vaccines has led to advancements in vaccine manufacturing and has potential solutions for various health conditions in future pandemics or diseases. It is essential to strengthen public systems for prevention and public health preparation for future crises.
During a new Covid vaccination campaign reminder by experts: Vaccination prevents millions of deaths worldwide from multiple diseases like polio or measles among others.
It’s crucial that individuals understand how their actions support public health initiatives by getting vaccinated against infectious diseases.
In conclusion Public Health plays an essential role in ensuring everyone’s wellbeing; it requires a holistic approach that involves collaboration between different entities and private companies, community involvement and education about its significance to individual lives saving efforts
