WMA calls for greater investment in healthcare
This article was originally published in Clinica
The World Medical Association (WMA) has adopted a resolution urging national governments to increase investment in healthcare, in the face of the global economic recession, particularly in low-income countries. The WMA voiced its concerns during its general assembly, which took place last week (October 14-17) in New Delhi, India. It warned that "many countries are suffering wide inequities and inequalities in healthcare", which is resulting in reduced access to healthcare on the part of the poorer segments of society. The WMA claims to represent more than eight million physicians through medical associations in 95 countries, and stands for, among things, the "highest possible standards of medical care".
