Public Health is often overlooked in the field of medicine and healthcare but becomes essential during times of crisis, such as the Covid pandemic. Preventative measures and resources are crucial to protecting the health of all citizens, as emphasized in a recent meeting called “Take care of your health.” 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 emphasizes the need for training at all levels, particularly for healthcare professionals.
Collaboration between different entities and private companies is vital in the field of Public Health. Juan Carlos Gil, general director of Moderna for Spain and Portugal, stresses the importance of investment in production and distribution of vaccines to guarantee access for patients across 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.
Acceptance by the population is key to the success of vaccination programs. Ángel Gil de Miguel from the Vaccine Advisory Committee at the Ministry of Health stresses that involving community and family medicine can improve vaccination rates among adults. Continuous observation and analysis are necessary to understand why certain populations are not vaccinated, as pointed out by Jaime Jesús Pérez, president of the Spanish Association of Vaccinology.
Vaccination has proven to be a cost-effective measure that saves lives especially in preventing deaths from influenza. The use of mRNA technology for Covid vaccines has led to advancements in vaccine manufacturing that have great potential to provide solutions for various health conditions in future pandemics or outbreaks. It’s imperative that public systems strengthen their focus on prevention and public health preparedness so they can respond effectively to any future crises.
In a new Covid vaccination campaign, experts remind people about how vaccines have prevented millions of deaths worldwide by supporting public health initiatives and preventing diseases.
In conclusion, Public Health plays an important role in ensuring a healthy society but it is often overlooked due to its reactive nature rather than proactive one. However when crisis strikes like Covid pandemic it becomes crucial therefore it’s essential that we invest resources on preventive measures
